The Taylor Made Living model will offer another choice for adults with disabilities and their families different from other community living arrangements – one that is driven by individual needs and choices recognizing that recreation, and leisure activities, community involvement, and social interaction are as important as vocational and daily living skills training.

Patrick Kirby, Chief Development Officer of Anne Carlsen Center, commented, “We were so excited to be selected as this year’s charity of choice. It allowed us to let so many more people know about what the Anne Carlsen Center is doing in the community, such as our Taylor Made Living residential facility.”

He added, “We are so grateful to RDO, the sponsors, the volunteers and staff who made this event so amazing, and everyone in the community who participated for their generosity and support!”

In its 16th year, RDO Caters Taters has raised more than $430,000 for charities in the Fargo Moorhead community. A different charity is selected each year.
