RHINELANDER - Some people bought a brat Saturday in support of a Northwoods organization. Wild Instincts held a brat sale fundraiser outside of Trig's in Rhinelander.
Volunteers sold brats, hot dogs, and even veggie dogs for the sale.
Wild Instincts is a non-profit wildlife care center in Rhinelander. The organization does not get any state or federal funding, so it relies entirely on donations.
Volunteers say people have been supportive of the brat fundraiser.
"Very generous. Most everyone that comes through will also give a couple dollar donation as well as making their purchase so that's greatly appreciated," said volunteer Nancy Nebgei. "All the funds that we bring in today go directly right up to the center to get used."
Wild Instincts plans to have a couple more fundraisers this summer. Visit the organization's website linked below for upcoming events.

WOODRUFF - Ascension Wisconsin Spirit Medical Transport hosted a fun-filled day for family and friends on Saturday.
This comes about five months after one of its helicopters crashed, killing three Spirit employees.
Regional manager Charles Kotke said those men were in mind today,
"Today is a day of bringing people together, as well as a celebration of our 25 year anniversary," said Kotke. "This team did an amazing job getting us back to caring for our patients and doing what we need to do to care of our community."
Flight paramedics showed off the aircrafts to people and the helicopter was a big hit.
"They definitely like to look at the aircrafts. See how we transport patients from point A to point B," said Northern Region Supervisor Ryan Short.
Next Saturday, Spirit is celebrating with more associates. The second part of the celebration will be in Stevens Point.
