Special Spotlight: Meet the RDO Caters Taters Product Partners
The Take Out containers that keep lunches warm and safe on their way back to the office. The raffle ticket that just might be the big winner. The cheese, the bacon bits, the chili – oh my! Did you know all of it is possible because of donations from special, behind-the-scenes supports of the event? RDO Caters Taters’ Product Partners donate several of the items that are key to the event’s success, from the event ticket in your hand to the cheese that tops your tater. Best of all, it is because of the generosity of the Product Partners that RDO Caters Taters is able to give 100 percent of proceeds – every potato enjoyed, every ticket sold, and every dollar raised – to this year’s benefiting charity, BIO Girls. Join us on a journey through the event and discover the role each of our Product Partners plays at RDO Caters Taters. Event Atmosphere With every year that went by, the buzz for RDO Caters Taters seemed to grow as significantly as the total dollars raised each year for the benefiting charity. A few years ago, the team realized more space was needed to accommodate a growing number of guests, make Take Out pick up smooth, and, of course, ensure everyone had a place to park. Delta Hotels by Marriott Fargo is once again serving as the home of RDO Caters Taters, providing plenty of space for all the people and all the potatoes. Whether it’s your first time attending the event or you have been a faithful spud supporter in the past, it is likely you hear about RDO Caters Taters on KFGO. As RDO Caters Taters’ longtime and exclusive radio partner, the KFGO team makes sure everyone knows all the event details and gets listeners amped up for the day. Amy Iler and JJ Gordon also join the fun on event day, broadcasting live from the Delta and talking with RDO Leadership and the benefiting charity. KFGO’s support wouldn’t be complete without Amy’s annual Facebook live experience, taking viewers on the inaugural trip through the serving line and creating the first pound-tato of the day! Upon entering the RDO Caters Taters space, guests know they are right at home, thanks to banners, signage, and the smiling faces of committee members wearing special event t-shirts, all from Sign Badgers. Whether you have your event and raffle tickets in hand or need to purchase one – or more – upon entering, you’ll have what you need to take in all the fun. Thanks to the team at J&M Printing, all event and raffle tickets and printed and ready for guests. All About the Food There’s no doubt about it – the food is the star of the show at RDO Caters Taters. While most of the focus is on the pound-tatoes, what would they be without all the tasty toppings? Bacon bits are donated by Hormel Foods, while shredded cheese come all the way from the west coast, donated by Tillamook. Other tater toppings include chili and this year’s special new topping, BBQ pork, both made and donated by Delta Hotels by Marriott Fargo. Add the final touches to your tater with salsa donated by Sysco and sour cream donated by Cass Clay. A beverage and dessert complete the meal. Pepsi Beverages Company provides a variety of soda choices, while Costco donates the cookies every guest receives with their meal. Brenco provides cutlery packs and the Take Out to-go containers, ensuring guests enjoy lunch whether dining in or taking out. Cole Papers also donates cutlery packs, water cups, and cleanup supplies so guests have a delicious dine-in experience. Additional food preparation supplies are provided courtesy of Staples. A pound-tato-sized thank you to all RDO Caters Taters product partners! Because of these generous donations, RDO Caters Taters gives 100 percent of proceeds to BIO Girls to support its mission of improving the self-esteem of girls through empowerment of self and service to others. -- Join us for RDO Caters Taters for Charity, Tuesday, November 16 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Delta Hotels by Marriott Fargo’s Crystal Ballroom. 100 percent of proceeds benefit BIO Girls.
