Monthly on Melrose


Monthly on Melrose is a Big Sunday’s unique series of workshops, collections, performances, parties, meals and special events to benefit our nonprofit partners. Like all Big Sunday projects, the idea behind Monthly on Melrose events is that everyone has some way that they can help somebody else – and we get so much more done when we all work together. 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 our upcoming Monthly on Melrose events. If you’d like to join us, or for more information, contact Our great friends and neighbors at Paramount Pictures sponsor every six months of Monthly on Melrose events. We are extremely grateful for their help and support. If you’d like to sponsor any or all of our upcoming projects, please contact for all the information. (It’s a great way to help lots of people, while engaging lots of others!)

Help us send kids back to school in style as we sort, count and pack all kinds of requested school supplies for kids at a bunch of different low-income schools in Los Angeles and Long Beach.  The sorting will be followed by a delicious and fun community dinner.  We need donors and volunteers.  To RSVP, please click HERE.

Big Sunday’s Community Cruise

Join nice folks from all over as we set sail in San Pedro Harbor for a special Big Sunday harbor cruise. We’ll be hosting nice folks with various challenges for a memorable morning on the water. Volunteers are needed to host, help out and simply be friendly. Yep, that’s it! This is all a part of Big Sunday’s incredibly popular new “We’re All in the Same Boat Project.”  For more info, please contact

“A big THANK YOU to Big Sunday, the volunteers and everyone who was a part of creating Walk With Sally’s adventure. Our kids, mentors and families had a wonderful time. I saw lots of beaming faces at the Aquarium of the Pacific! (And lunch was great, too!) Thanks for EVERYTHING!!!”
