FARGO — RDO Equipment Company is celebrated its 21st annual Caters Taters event, Tuesday, Nov. 16, raising money for a local nonprofit.

Each person attending got a baked potato with toppings that ranged from cheese and sour cream to pulled pork and coleslaw.

This year, proceeds are going to BIO Girls, an organization that aims to boost young girls' self esteem.

WDAY News spoke to BIO Girls executive director Missy Heilman, who said the money will go a long way.

"We want to continue to increase the volume of girls going through the program, because when we do that, it has a positive change and directly impacts the health of a community and then the health of our state," Heilman said.
