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 annual Monthly on Melrose events.   Dates, times, and sign-up information will be posted for each event about a month in advance.  For more info about upcoming events, please check out our special events calendar!

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!)
