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!)

Big Sunday’s 4th Annual Valentine-Making, Bingo-Playing Community Breakfast

We want to make sure no one is forgotten on Valentine’s Day, so we’re gathering tons of nice people to make cards and gift bags for thousands of shut-ins and people who are ailing or facing a tough time. All Valentines will be picked up by the Do-Good Bus concluding our fun event that includes a raucous game of bingo and, of course, a community breakfast. Perfect, right?

Big Sunday’s Community Cruise

Big Sunday’s harbor cruises are awesome!  For the first cruise of 2016 we’ll be hosting our old pals the blind vets from Long Beach as well as parent volunteers from the Normandie Avenue School and many others. We need volunteers to host, be friendly, hand out donuts, enjoy one another and the ride.  We call it the “We’re All in the Same Boat Project” and everyone has exactly one job: to meet one new person.  To sign up today, please email

And here are some photos from just a few of Big Sunday’s past Monthly on Melrose events:

“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!!!”
