Big Sunday happily welcomes you to Our Really Big Community Calendar

We try to include all kinds of volunteering and helping opportunities for all kinds of interests, talents, passions, and ages! As you’ll see, these include volunteering opportunities (one-time and long-term) as well as the chance to support a nonprofit by attending fundraising events. Plus, of course, we include all of Big Sunday’s homegrown events, too! Whoever you are, and whatever you do, there is someone out there who could use your help.

If you have questions about our calendar, or would like to add a listing, please contact calendar@bigsunday.org or submit your event/opportunity via the button below.

Volunteers: OPCC / Lamp Community Summer Fundraiser @ Los Angeles, CA (address provided at registration)
Jun 10 @ 2:00 pm – Jun 10 @ 7:00 pm

The OPCC and Lamp Community Summer Fundraiser is just around the corner on Saturday, June 11th and they need help from volunteers to staff the event to ensure it is a success! This fundraiser is hosted by the Vintage Hollywood Foundation and it raises critical funds that help these organizations keep their doors open to provide services to the community’s most vulnerable neighbors. 

There are 3 shifts that need to be filled and they’ll need a LOT of hands on deck!

  • Friday June 10th, 2016 – 2:00pm – 7:00pm – 15 volunteers needed
  • Saturday June 11th, 2016 – 9:00am – 2:00pm – 15 volunteers needed 
  • Saturday June 11th, 2016 – 4:00pm – 10:30pm –  30 volunteers needed (must be 21 years or older**)


What roles can you fill?

  • Event set-up – strong and able bodied volunteers needed to assist in setting up the event space up
  • Check in & Registration – volunteers will ensure all guests, media and celebrities are checked in
  • Silent & live auction monitors – volunteers who love playing on cell phones are needed, as they will be using an electronic bidding system that works right through guests’ cell phones
  • Winery and restaurant liaisons – volunteers will ensure all the participating wineries and restaurants are supported and stocked with what they need
  • The green team – volunteers will be circulating on-site at all times to make sure the grounds are looking pristine throughout the entire event itself
  • Event break-down – strong and able bodied volunteers are needed to help break down after the event wraps up at 9:00 pm; the more help on site, the faster everyone finishes!

If you would like to volunteer, please contact Kate Berman at kberman@opcc.net. For more info on OPCC and Lamp Community, please visit www.opcc.net and www.lampcommunity.org, respectively.

OPCC and Lamp Community serve adult and child victims of domestic violence and ends homelessness of Los Angeles' most vulnerable individuals, primarily adults with mental illness through a continuum of services and housing, enabling them to reach their highest level of self-sufficiency and community integration.  Volunteer today!

2018 Tikim Filipino Food Fun Run @ Los Angeles Historic Park | Los Angeles | California | United States

Race day is coming up and we still need more volunteers. We're on the lookout for people to help with some of the below. Not all races need all areas, but this is a general idea on where you may be assigned the morning of the race:

Parking Direction

Positioned near and at the entry to designated parking areas to direct athletes, attendees and other volunteers to correct parking areas, registration area and event plaza.

Water Stations Along the Course

Fill cups of water at water stations along course. Maintain filled water cups for runners/walkers as needed. Clean up post race, throwing all empty water cups into trash receptacles.

Food & Beverage Tables

Cut bananas, oranges and bagels as well as set up tables. Additionally, hand out to runners and walkers before and after they run/walk.

Course Direction & cheer stations

Positioned at various key points along the course, volunteers will point or holds signs to keep runners/walkers on the proper course. Cheer the runners and walkers on as they participate in the race.

Course Worker

Assist with the set-up and breakdown of course by removal of cones, signs, course water tables and containers of water.

Event Day Registration

Welcome athletes, collect registration information, distribute race packets, race t-shirts and goodie bags on race day.

Finish Line

Assist with sorting of athletes as they finish the run/walk, handing out finisher medals and keeping order in the finish chutes.

Awards Booth

Assist with sorting and distributing age group awards to top three finishers in each age group.

Breakdown and Clean-up

All volunteers are asked to assist with the breakdown and clean-up of the course, start & finish line area and event plaza area.

Depending on the race, Kiddie Fun Run Course Volunteers

Positioned along the Kiddie Fun Run course, volunteers will ensure all participants follow and stay on course.

As an A5 Events volunteer you will be fed and hydrated.

If you have any friends or family that also may be interested in volunteering, please have them sign up through this website or show up with you on the day of the event. You will be assigned a job at the event.

Without our amazing volunteers, this race simply would not happen. So on that note, thanks and we look forward to hearing from you.

Please show up at 7:00am.
