Big Event Gala and Golf Tournament This Weekend

This Saturday, October 24, The Big Event will be having its annual Gala fundraiser and silent auction. As an organization that relies on sponsorship and fundraising to cover our yearly operating expenses, The Big Event hosts this night of food, speakers, and the auction for anyone wanting to support the organization. Find out more about Gala and how to donate here.

The morning following Gala, Sunday October 25, we will also be hosting the First Annual Big Event Golf Tournament. This is a way for parents, sponsors and any supporters of the organization to come out and enjoy 18 holes, and meet some of our organization leaders. This will be held at Pebble Creek Country Club in College Station, and will shotgun start at 9:00am. To find out more about the tournament, contact

We appreciate your support as we approach The Big Event on April 2, 2016. We hope to see you this weekend!

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:

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!
