Nearly 20 years ago, about 750 Fargo-Moorhead community members attended the first-ever RDO Caters Taters for Charity potato luncheon. Today, that same event is entering its 20th year of serving up spuds for a good cause and has raised nearly $675,000 for local charities along the way. While the community has played a big role in the continued success of RDO Caters Taters by showing up to support year after year, the event has also grown because of generous companies that sponsor every year. One of these companies is Nilles Lawyers. Spotlight on Nilles Lawyers Established in the early 1900s, Nilles Lawyers has expanded its Fargo-Moorhead roots and grown into more than 10 areas of practice, from construction law and estate planning to adoption law, an area that’s close to this year’s event and charity, PATH ND. The Nilles Lawyers team seeks to continually adjust and adapt traditional legal approaches to meet clients’ individual needs and goals in the modern legal landscape. With its core focus on legal matters, it’s probably a stretch to say Nilles Lawyers has anything in common with the RDO Caters Taters team and event… …But that couldn’t be further from the truth, explained in three key ways by various members of the Nilles Lawyers team. 1. Home Sweet Home Just like R.D. Offutt Company, Nilles Lawyers is proud to call the F-M community home. Next summer, when R.D. Offutt Company moves downtown into the new Block 9 building, it will be near Nilles Lawyers, whose headquarters is in the adjacent Radisson tower. The move will bring together all local R.D. Offutt Company team members in one building, something the team appreciates. “Our entire staff, nearly 40 employees, all work together in our downtown office so it’s a great environment for connecting and collaborating,” one attorney said. 2. Love Those Spuds It’s probably not surprising that R.D. Offutt Company team members love potatoes. Every year, the RDO Caters Taters committee is able to enjoy a pound-tato at the end of the day, while team members who work back at the office often order Take Out. The team at Nilles Lawyers also loves potatoes and makes it a point, not just to sponsor RDO Caters Taters, but attend the event as well. “We always attend,” one attorney said. “Occasionally, we’ll have a few people order Take Out but we all really love the event, so we make plans to attend.” 3. Making Fundraising Fun While R.D. Offutt Company takes giving back seriously, anyone who has ever attended RDO Caters Taters knows it’s equally all about the fun. Nilles Lawyers takes a similar approach to community giving, coming up with new ways to raise money while making it enjoyable. One team member described a fundraiser the company held last year, leading up to Giving Hearts Day. “Rather than simply have employees donate if they chose, we made it fun by having ‘Jeans Day’ every Wednesday,” she explained. “For a small donation, employees could wear jeans on Wednesdays for several weeks while we raised money for a local charity.” She added that all employees were given the opportunity to vote for the benefiting charity, as “Another way to get everyone engaged and involved in the effort and make it more fun to give back – because it is fun to give back!” Learn more about Nilles Lawyers including its history, areas of practice, and more by visiting the website. ---------- Join us for RDO Caters Taters for Charity, Tuesday, November 26 from 11 a.m. - 1 p.m. at the Delta Hotels by Marriott Fargo. 100% of proceeds benefit PATH ND.
