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!)

Big Sunday’s 7th Annual Holiday Party & Sing-a-long

Each year people from all walks of life join us to eat, sing (with a live band!) and enjoy the holidays. As always, our guests of honor are the incredible kids from Ability First and the amazing folks from Sunset Hall. We’re also hosting other friends with struggles large and small.

Volunteers are needed to spread some holiday cheer to our invited guests. There will be singing (good singing not necessary — trust us) (and no, you don’t have to sing if you don’t want to). We’ll deck the halls and light a menorah, too. Of course, there will be loads of arts & crafts and delicious holiday treats. We’ll also be collecting toys for kids, winter coats for kids and adults and non-perishable food items for our End of the Month Club.  To sign up today, click HERE!
