Last year’s event produced winning fish, very happy anglers, and a $20,000 donation to the American Cancer Society's Patrick Taylor Hope Lodge in New Orleans, Mary Bird Perkins Cancer Center at TGMC, Thibodeaux Regional Cancer Center, and the “Wig Room” at the Lady of the Sea General Hospital located in Galliano. The rodeo’s goal to raise awareness and support for breast cancer was achieved.
