BLUFFTON, SC (WTOC) -

The 9th annual Boston Butts Fundraiser kicked off Friday in Bluffton.

The Bluffton Township Fire District, who organized the event, started slow cooking the barbecue at 9 a.m. Thursday.

So far they have ordered more than 324 Boston Butts and they're still going strong.

All of the proceeds will go to help 13-month-old Daxton Scoggins, who suffered a brain bleed after being born prematurely.

"It's a big event for us, prepping for weeks and it takes the whole department. We have a good time, it makes us really proud to do it," Battalion Chief Todd Harvey said.

Last year, the fire department raised $13,000.
