RDO Caters Taters for Charity is back in 2021! This year’s event is supporting BIO (Beautiful Inside and Out) Girls, a nonprofit that aims to improve the self-esteem of girls through empowerment of self and service to others. BIO Girls will receive 100 percent of event proceeds and use the funds to expand self-esteem programming across the state of North Dakota and locally in Cass and Clay counties. “BIO Girls is on a mission to change the future for girls in our region by providing a safe, nurturing environment where they can safely take risks, form lasting connections with peers and mentors, gain the confidence to make value-based decisions and develop a more expansive view of themselves and their opportunities,” Missy Heilman, BIO Girls Founder and Executive Director said. “We are so grateful to RDO for selecting BIO Girls as the recipient of the Caters Taters proceeds. This gift will support our efforts as we work to expand our programming footprint within our community and our state.” Annually, BIO Girls reaches 2,000 girls across the Midwest and, in North Dakota, 1 in 25 girls participate in the program. According to Heilman, the organization has a goal to increase the impact of its program by 300 percent across the state by 2025. The year 2021 marks the return of the in-person potato luncheon with a 20-year history. The event will be held on November 16, 2021, at the Delta Hotels by Marriott Fargo. “Since the beginning, RDO Caters Taters has focused on two things: engaging the community in a fun way and impacting a local charity,” said Tom Espel, Corporate Treasurer for R.D. Offutt Company. “Especially after last year, I think everyone is looking forward to the opportunity to gather and enjoy a meal, and we are thrilled to bring that back to the community while supporting a great organization like BIO Girls.” Since it began, RDO Caters Taters for Charity has raised nearly $800,000 for local charities, including Great Plains Food Bank, PATH ND and, most recently, Valley Senior Services.
