RDO Caters Taters for Charity is possible because of the goods, services, and dollars donated by generous companies that support the event year after year. We’re pleased to highlight our Hot Potato sponsors with a special feature here on the blog. Read to find out more about one of our Dining Room sponsors, Eide Bailly, including a few traits it shares with R.D. Offutt Company. Eide Bailly Those who have heard of Eide Bailly likely think of the company as a specialist in audit and tax compliance – and it is. But this Top 20 CPA firm is also much more than that. Founded in 1917, Eide Bailly recently achieved a milestone few companies reach – 100 years in business. Throughout that century, the company that began as an accounting firm has grown in number of employees and locations, as well as services offered. In the past 15 years, innovation has led the way in the company’s evolution, with business advisory services becoming more of a focus. Just as it doesn’t limit itself to one or two areas of service, Eide Bailly doesn’t focus on only one or two types of key customers. The company, which has locations in 14 states, partners with companies of all sizes and in a variety of industries. One of those is R.D. Offutt Company, which is how Eide Bailly came to be a sponsor of RDO Caters Taters since the event’s early days. But the reason Eide Bailly continues to support the event goes beyond the great relationship it has with R.D. Offutt Company. Community Focused Like R.D. Offutt Company, Eide Bailly is invested in the communities in which it does business. According to Chad Flanagan, Partner in Charge of the Fargo office, it’s one of the major reasons the company continues to sponsor and participate in RDO Caters Taters every year. “We enjoy supporting companies like ours that care about the community and are committed to giving back,” he said. “R.D. Offutt Company has a great culture of giving back and we’re proud to be part of that.” Every year he has attended RDO Caters Taters, Chad is always impressed by the number of people who take part, saying, “It seems like the whole town buzzes about it. It’s great to see so many members of the community show up to support the event and charitable partners.” In addition to Eide Bailly sponsoring and attending the event, several team members look forward to the event, with some attending and others ordering take out – because, according to several of them, “The potatoes are delicious!” Another shared trait of Eide Bailly and R.D. Offutt Company is that both businesses began in the F-M community and both maintain their company headquarters here. The fact that RDO Cater Taters’ benefiting charities are all right here within the area also motivates Eide Bailly to support the event every year. “This year’s charity, Great Plains Food Bank, serves a great need in our community,” Chad said. “Every year the charities RDO Caters Taters supports are so deserving, it makes it an easy decision for us participate.” Visit Eide Bailly’s website to learn more about the company, its locations, and how it celebrated 100 years in business in 2017. ----- Join us for RDO Caters Taters for Charity, Tuesday, November 20 from 11 a.m. - 1 p.m. at the Delta Hotels by Marriott Fargo. 100% of proceeds benefit Great Plains Food Bank.
