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 If you’d like to sponsor any or all of our upcoming projects, please contact for all the information. (Sponsorships usually start at $1000. 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, March 12, 10:00am – 12:00pm



Big Sunday’s “We’re All in the Same Boat” Project

Everybody loves Big Sunday’s harbor cruises!  Big Sunday invites lots of people of all ages, from all walks of life for a two-hour harbor cruise.  Guests include individuals, families, corporate groups, faith groups, plus nice folks from group homes, hospitals, shelters – some of whom have never been on a boat before!

All participants are asked just one thing: to meet at least one new person, then we all enjoy each other’s company, coffee, juice and awesome donuts, while watching the sea lions take in some sun.  That’s it.

Big Sunday’s next cruise from Ports ‘o Call in San Pedro is on Sunday, March 12.  The cruise leaves at 10 am and returns at 12 pm.  We hope you can join us … after all, we’re all in the same boat!  Cruises are always free.
