Daughtry and 3 Doors Down Help “Restore The Shore”

A recent concert on the Jersey Shore from Daughtry and 3 Door Down turned into a generous donation toward helping “Restore The Shore”.

Townsquare Media employee and Hollywood Reporter correspondent Michelle Angermiller reports that the groups handed a $15,000 donation through The Better Life Foundation (founded by 3DD lead singer Brad Arnold) to the Toms River based charity Hometown Heroes.  The check was presented at the end of the recent concert in Asbury Park at Convention Hall.

3 Doors Down reached out to Hometown Heroes founder Michael Schwartz because “they felt a kinship” with the Jersey Shore area destroyed by the Super Storm.  Asbury Park was one of the hardest hit beach towns in Monmouth County.

Angermiller reports that during Daughtry’s set, lead singer and American Idol alum Chris Daughtry dedicated their song “We’re Not Gonna Fall” to the crown at Convention Hall with a call to rebuild, and Brad Arnold came back out for the 3DD encore wearing a Restore The Shore T-shirt.

Hometown Heroes is selling Restore The Shore merchandise – hoodies, wrist bands, stickers and t-shirts – with proceeds to benefit those who have been affected by “Sandy”.  Should you want to make an order for the holidays, click here (but you only have to December 7th to guarantee delivery before Xmas).
