WAUSAU, WI (WSAU) - If you’re going to the grocery store in Wausau this weekend, you might want to save room for a bratwurst or two.
A brat fry fundraiser is being held at Crossroads County Market to help a family acquire a wheelchair-accessible van.
4-year-old Maddie Tlusty was born with several disabilities, affecting her brain, hip,one foot, jaw, and even her airway. The “Make Maddie Mobile” campaign is slowly progressing towards their 20 thousand dollar goal, which is the cost of the vehicle. Maddie doesn't go anywhere without using a special wheelchair.
Several people stopped Friday to make donations. The brat fry lasts until 6:00 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.
There’s more information about “Make Maddie Mobile” on her Facebook page.
