G’day from Big Sunday!

It’s official! Big Sunday will be going Down Under this fall. If you happen to be in or around Adelaide on October 12, please join our friends there for The 1st Annual Big Sunday Adelaide! Our wonderful new friends at Hope Church there (some of you may have met them when they came to LA for Big Sunday Weekend last May) are the engine behind our first foray abroad. They have all kinds of great events planned, with lots of great people onboard. Of course, like all Big Sunday events, everyone of all ages and backgrounds is welcome!


Once More, With Feeling!

For the hundreds of folks who joined us last summer for one of our special Big Sunday harbor cruises, you’ll know that it was a great time, full of friendship, laughter and donuts. To celebrate Big Sunday Australia, we’ll be hosting a special fall cruise on Sunday, October 12, from 10-12. The boat leaves from San Pedro, and we’ll be hosting our pals from US Vets, The Long Beach Substance Abuse Center, The Ettie Lee Center for Youth and Jewish Family Service. If you’d like to join us, contact

Big Sunday Featured in the Los Angeles Times

Please check out the absolutely fantastic article about Big Sunday’s Valentine’s event in today’s LA Times. We love it because they totally “get” what we’re trying to do at Big Sunday, 52 weeks of the year. Many thanks to Nita Lelyveld for her wonderful reporting and to Lawrence K. Ho for his terrific photographs.


Have you checked our theBIGlist lately?

Got stuff? Big Sunday has an easy way for you to dispose of items you no longer need! theBIGlist connects nonprofits and schools with local donors. It’s just gone through a major upgrade (thanks, Marilyn S. Broad Foundation!), and is bigger and busier than ever. The list has helped us find grateful new homes for items that range from furniture and appliances to electronics, baby strollers/cribs, concert tickets and even pets. Donations are tax-deductible, and recipients can connect directly with donors to coordinate item pick-up! Check out theBIGlist HERE. Questions? Contact
