About Budda Box
“Please accept this check from Budda-Box, Inc. There are hundreds of people in Marquette County that are supporting you in your fight against cancer”, are the words written in a card sent to the cancer patients, along with a check.
Budda-Box, Inc has been helping fight cancer in Marquette County since 1991. The non-profit organization helps support people, who have cancer, with financial and emotional support. Starting with a golf outing to raise money for a friend with cancer, the organization continues today. There are only two criteria set for their work. One, they assist people who have been diagnosed with cancer; and two, are residents of Marquette County.
Budda Box began in 1991 as a Golf Outing and Auction to support people in Marquette County with cancer. It began with sixty golfers and total proceeds of $300.00. Over the years, the number of golf participants has grown to 280 with 380 people attending the auction. With our growth came certification as a nationally registered Non-Profit Organization with a board of seven directors.
All of our proceeds stay in Marquette County. Our goal is to help people with the immense cost of treatment and services of this deadly disease, but equally important to us is to show those who are suffering emotionally that there are hundreds of people who are there for them and who truly care. --- Feel free to contact any Budda-Box director.
