Big Event Wins Governor's Award

Each year, the Governor and First Lady of Texas select 9 recipients for the Governor's Volunteer Awards. This year, The Big Event at Texas A&M has been awarded the Higher Education Community Impact Award, given to the "college or university that supports and encourages civic engagement and volunteering as a core value." As an organization that embodies A&M's core value of selfless service, the Big Event's mission is to "simply say thank you" to the residents of the Bryan/College Station community for their overwhelming support of the University and student body.

Check out the University's press release regarding the award here: 

As well as this page from the OneStar Foundation:

We are truly humbled by this recognition, and give our sincerest thanks to anyone and everyone that made this happen!

Thank you, 2015 sponsors!

Each year The Big Event is only possible due to the generous support of our sponsors! Without corporate and local business sponsorship The Big Event would not be able to be what it is today. Below is a graphic of our 2015 sponsors:









See you in 2016!

The Big Event is excited to announce that nearly 22,000 Aggies signed up for The Big Event on March 28, 2015. Come join our Aggie family on April 2, 2016 as we look to serve our community again this year!

Our mission is “simply saying thank you" to the residents of the Bryan/College Station community, regardless of socioeconomic status. This act of “simply saying thank you,” is how we as Aggies live out our core value of Selfless Service.

Our gratitude and service is NOT based on the actions or socioeconomic status of the people we serve. Rather, it is simply a result of our desire as an Aggie Family to serve our community!
