Local Arts Fundraiser Is A Meaty Challenge But It's All For A Good Cause

May 18, 2016

The FLY Children's Art Center in Ypsilanti will receive financial support from a special fundraiser taking place this Sunday, May 22nd.

The Wurst Bar in Ypsilanti is holding its third annual Wurst Challenge.

I spoke with one the event's creator, local blogger Mark Maynard, and the FLY Center's chairman of the board Linette Lao about what's happening.


The Wurst Bar is creating special 20-foot-long sausages for the challenge, and supporters can pledge donations for those taking part.
