Charles “Bubba” Bailey was hospitalized and unable to attend a fundraiser in his honor Saturday, but organizer Brandy Hudson said the event was a great success.

“We had a good crowd and wonderful music,” she said. “We raised close to $7,000 for Bubba.”

Bailey, a former Andalusia Police Department officer, recently was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer and has no insurance. Saturday was the second fundraiser members of the APD and auxiliary have done for him and his family.
