Last year’s rodeo produced winners in every category, happy anglers and supported breast cancer awareness through the American Cancer Society with a donation of $8,000. This year’s rodeo, with the support of our fishing friends, will give a donation to Mary Bird Perkins Cancer Center at TGMC, the Thibodaux Regional Medical Cancer Center and Our Lady of the Sea Hospital. These funds are for direct patient services locally to support cancer patients with pharmacy cards, fuel cards and wigs through our local hospitals. The rodeo is also dedicated to raising awareness about breast cancer.
The Grand Isle Ladies Fishing Rodeo Committee encourages TEAM Fishing, by getting a group of friends together to “fish the ditches” or charter a boat to “fish the back bay.” Design a team outfit and enter to win the “Fishing Fashion Award” as a team. Register your team name and members to be eligible for the award at the Rodeo ticket booth during the rodeo or at the GI Tourist Center prior to the rodeo. Contestants must be present, wearing the team outfit and participate in the fishing fashion show Saturday evening beginning at 6 pm.
Come on down to the island for good fishing, good friends and good fun!
