COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - The K9 unit at the Richland County Sheriff's Department is getting a boost.

Sheriff Leon Lott says Zach's Sandwich Shop and Schroeder's Towing are hosting a Lowcountry boil on Thursday to benefit the department.

Lott says the business owners contacted his deputies looking for a way to give back to the department and show support for its K9 unit.

Similar events have been successful in the past. Organizers say the last time this event was held, they served 125 plates in less than two hours.
