BUFFALO, NY -A somewhat unlikely hero has helped a Western New York family in need.

Kid Rock played a show at Town Ballroom Sunday night as part of a tour meant to have his foundation help out other cities.

And through a donation to the Boys and Girls club, one local family who has spent the last 10 months homeless will now be able to have an apartment to call their own.

Robert Yacone tells us it's been tough to keep things going after his wife left him and his three children. "But unfortunate too when we arrived back in town.. I've had tragedy too. My brother was killed on a motorcycle September 17th, at 40-years-old, on a country road, hit a deer... so I don't what else could have gotten worse for me. And then tonight to win this, it's just so much of a fairy tale."

During the press conference, Kid Rock said, "I'm a big believer that when enough people get together and care about anything, that the human spirit's very powerful, and can change things."

Grants were also given out to Music is Art, Gauches Unite and Special Spaces.
