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, Nilles Lawyers, including how the team has fun at work and supports charitable causes at the same time. Nilles Lawyers The North Dakota Supreme Court. The federal judiciary. Ambassador of the United States. What do these three things have in common? All three have had representation from Nilles Lawyers’ attorneys. While having its attorneys in all three of these prestigious positions is noteworthy for the company, Nilles Lawyers is proudest of its longtime standing in the Fargo-Moorhead community, a presence dating back to the early 1900s. The company was established in downtown Fargo a century ago and, throughout those years, has expanded into more than 10 areas of practice, and added Northern Title, a division that provides complete closing and escrow services in Minnesota and North Dakota. Nilles Lawyers is especially proud of the partnerships it has established with local companies, one of them being R.D. Offutt Company. The firm’s personal connections to both R.D. Offutt Company and charitable causes is one of the reasons Nilles Lawyers began supporting RDO Caters Taters since the inaugural year. Support and Fun The very first year RDO Caters Taters was held, it was in support of the American Cancer Society. Many people at the firm have lost family members to cancer, so when it was a natural fit for the firm to support RDO Caters Taters from the beginning. The firm also has lawyers that went to law school with Paul Noah, General Counsel for R.D. Offutt Company. While both business and personal relationships have kept RDO Caters Taters sponsorship top of mind with Nilles Lawyers, it’s the sheer fun of the event that gets the team excited to participate every year. Attorneys and staff regularly attend the event, purchase raffle tickets, or order Take Out. While they love the food and think the raffle is exciting, just seeing friends there every year makes it a fun event to attend. Speaking of fun, last fall the team at Nilles Lawyers had some fun of their own in support of this year’s RDO Caters Taters benefiting charity, Great Plains Food Bank. In conjunction with a Monday Night Football game, all employees were encouraged to wear their favorite Vikings jersey with a donation to the Great Plains Food Bank. It was also Halloween, so people could wear costumes as an alternative to their favorite Vikings jersey. The firm and individual attorneys also matched the donations of the staff so Nilles Lawyers was able to make a substantial donation to the Great Plains Food Bank. Supporting RDO Caters Taters’ benefiting charities has come full-circle for Nilles Lawyers, with American Cancer Society the first year and Great Plains Food Bank this year. But no matter which charity is selected each year, Nilles Lawyers is proud to continue its support. “We think it’s great the event involves different charities each year,” one attorney at Nilles Lawyers said. “It shows R.D. Offutt Company’s commitment to the entire community and that’s important to us, too so we’re happy to be part of it.” ----- 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.
