The Dodi Groves Inaugural Witches Ride took place in Sugar Mill Pond, and the community went all out to support the event.

The event was held to raise money for the Dodi Groves Breast Cancer Fund, which will serve several South Louisiana parishes.  The goal of the Dodi Groves Breast Cancer Fund is to support local cancer organizations with established breast health services and fill the gaps in Acadiana where those services are needed.
