Fundraiser at Jim 'N Nick's Barbeque for the Gavin Quance Campaign

BLUFFTON, SC (WTOC) -

Police are at the Jim ‘N Nick’s Barbeque in Bluffton, raising money for the Gavin Quance Campaign.

Quance was an 8-year-old boy who drowned in a Bluffton pool last year.

Police were unable to resuscitate him and now the department is raising money to get automated external defibrillators put in all of the patrol cars.

"We're often first on scene to not only criminal calls, but also medical calls and medical emergencies. Our goal is to have the resources available to provide immediate support when someone needs it those medical emergencies before fire or EMS are able to get on scene and provide additional care,” said Carissa Branson, Bluffton Police Department.

Jim ‘N Nick’s is off of highway 278 in Bluffton. The fundraiser ends at 9 p.m.

Ten percent of the sales will go toward the police campaign.
