Monthly on Melrose

Monthly on Melrose is Big Sunday’s unique series of workshops, collections, performances, parties, meals and special events to benefit our nonprofit partners. Lots of these have become annual traditions, like Our Annual MLK Clothing Drive & Community Breakfast, Vets’ Night, Spooky Sunday and more. Like all Big Sunday projects, the idea behind Monthly on Melrose events is to connect people through helping – after all, we’re all in the same boat. Everyone (of all ages!) is always welcome. Groups, too! (Really!) All of these events are held at our cool offices at 6111 Melrose Avenue in L.A. – but every so often we have a Monthly Off Melrose event. (Check the listings.)

Below, see a list of our upcoming Monthly on Melrose events. If you’d like to join us, or for more information, contact rob@bigsunday.org. If you’d like to sponsor any or all of our upcoming projects, please contact david@bigsunday.org for all the information. (Sponsorships usually start at $1000 and go up. It’s a great way to help lots of people, while engaging lots of others! And donors love that they can see exactly were their contribution is going!)


Sunday, February 12, 4:00pm – 7:00pm

 

Big Sunday’s 5th Annual Valentine-Making, Bingo-Playing Community Dinner

Big Sunday wants to ensure no one is forgotten on Valentine’s Day, so we’re gathering volunteers to make cards and gift bags for thousands of shut-ins and people who are ailing or facing a tough time. Participants will also enjoy a terrific community dinner and, a raucous game of bingo. All ages are welcome!

Big Sunday is also collecting unexpired, non-perishable food items for our friends at Alexandria House, a non-profit transitional residence and house of hospitality providing safe and supportive housing for women and children in the process of moving from emergency shelter to permanent housing. We are collecting pasta and sauce, but cleaning out your cupboards is great. Soups, canned meats, cereal, beans, jelly and peanut butter are always winners too.

For more info on the event or to RSVP, please click HERE.

Would you or your group be interested in being a sponsor of this event?

Sponsorships start at $1000 and allow us to keep all our programs free!  For more info, please contact adam@bigsunday.org.
