Runway for the Roses: May 6, 2023

The Sacred Heart Equestrian Center, on the historic grounds of the Academy of the Sacred Heart and Berchmans Academy in Grand Coteau, LA, was the idyllic setting for this must-see event. Guests donned their best Derby hats to meet and greet the horses and riders and wine and dine in style as they cheered on their favorite horse for the big race.

Proceeds from this event benefit the equestrian program at the Sacred Heart Equestrian Center, Acadiana's only school-sponsored equestrian program!

Thank you for your support of Runway for the Roses 2023 and the Sacred Heart Equestrian Center!
