2022 Annual Golf Outing

To all our loyal supporters:

The North Aurora Firefighters Association will be hosting its 22nd Annual Golf Outing on Saturday, September 17th, 2022 to benefit the North Aurora Firefighters Association and :”Budda’s Brotherhood Foundation” which was founded after the death of one of our own, Marco “Budda” Ordaz. Proceeds will be split between the tow organizations.

Your contributions go right back into the community by supplementing our public education efforts. The association also provides financial assistance to local charities, civic groups and offers annual college scholarships to graduating high school students from North Aurora.

Your donations also support Budda’s Brotherhood Foundation which is dedicated to helping local firefighters battling cancer. Budda’s Brotherhood Foundation was founded by Marco “Budda” Ordaz’s widow, Tricia Ordaz. Marco, a fulltime firefighter/paramedic with the North Aurora Fire District was diagnosed with Leukemia in 2006. Marco passed in 2008 from complications of a stem cell transplant that was to cure him from the cancer. Multiple studies show that firefighters have a significantly increased risk of developing cancer. The foundation provides immediate financial assistance to firefighters diagnosed with cancer to help with the financial struggles that commonly accompany the diagnosis of cancer.
