YPSILANTI, Mich. – A fundraising event in Michigan plans to pit participants with big appetites against 20-foot-long bratwursts that weigh close to six pounds.

The Wurst Challenge to benefit the FLY Children’s Art Center is scheduled for Thursday evening. The event is hosted by Ypsilanti’s Wurst Bar, the New Holland Brewing Co., blogger Mark Maynard and others. It’s a fundraiser for non-profit FLY’s Creativity Lab in Ypsilanti.

The Ann Arbor News reported earlier this month that the bar will donate 10 cents an inch for the sausage consumed. Participants also are raising money separately. Awards will be given to the biggest eater as well as the one with the best bratwurst-eating style.
