For 500 people and really, once they are 14, they are adults. I would consider that hot dogs are a minimal item, however, hot dogs store well. Burgers, unless you are doing fresh, can be frozen and thus, they store well also. I see the breakdown as thus.

500 total people, two servings per person

350 adult portions (assume 2/3 take a brat and burger, 1/3 hot dog)
200 children (assume hot dogs, singles)

you need:
315 hot dogs
130 brats
130 burgers

But, as stated above, you can freeze most of this stuff, and in these amounts, you are going to have the ability to buy wholesale at low prices. Over buy, this is not the thing you need to skimp on. I would buy...

you need:
350 hot dogs
200 brats
250 burgers

BTW, don't forget that you will need a lot of condiments, and it is better to buy them in large quantities and repackage into several small squeeze bottles, if possible. You cut down on both waste and spoilage that way, plus, you can move the line faster with several small condiment locations.
