The Big Event Executive Team would like to thank the following sponsors for their generous sponsorship of The 2016 Big Event. Without these sponsors, we would not be able to complete over 30,000 service hours in just one day throughout the New River Valley.

Our sponsors allow 10,000 students to complete 1,200 projects, impacting thousands of residents across Blacksburg, Christiansburg and the New River Valley every year. Specifically, the money goes to pay for our tools, the storage units that they are stored in and the volunteer t-shirt, which helps to advertise the Big Event across town.

Special thanks to Tory Cottle, Taylor Cugini, and Austin Moon for donating to The 2016 Big Event.

Are you interested in donating?
There is still time before April 8 – simply contact our Fundraising Team or donate directly online using GoFundMe.

Thank you to our 2017 Sponsors:

The Retreat
First and Main
Capital One

This year’s Big Event is on April 8, 2017. With the anticipation that the students of Virginia Tech may be able to say “Thank You” to as many community residents as possible, we encourage you to request a job here: http://vtbigevent.org/volunteer.
