We have reached 4,000 volunteers! That is 40% of the way to our goal of 10,000. Make sure all of your friends sign up, so we can have a record breaking number of volunteers!

So far we have had two very successful project checks! Reminder: There are three more project checks on March 19th, March 26th, and April 2th. Project checks are done at every job site before the actual day of the Big Event and let us confirm that a project is doable within four hours, that an accurate number of volunteers are assigned to a project and lets us answer any questions you may have. Keep up the good work Hokies!

We are so excited to announce that 2,000 volunteers have signed up for The Big Event so far! We are a fifth of the way to our goal of 10,000 volunteers!

The 15th annual Big Event is on April 9, 2016 this year. Check our our new promotion video to learn more about our 15th anniversary and sign up below!

The Big Event Executive Team would like to thank the following sponsors for their generous sponsorship of The 2017 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.
