My Big Day is a huge supporter of non-profits! We select a local non-profit to donate to for all of our "signature events." We give a portion of all proceeds from ticket sales to charities we support personally, as well as. professionally.
For our 2015 Sloshball Tournament, My Big Day chose the Fort Collins Cat Rescue.
Fort Collins Cat Rescue & Spay/Neuter Clinic (FCCRSNC) operates the only truly low-cost spay/neuter clinic in the area. The numbers of unwanted pets that will be prevented from entering this world brings an entirely new sense of satisfaction to all of the people involved.
Their Mission Statement:
Fort Collins Cat Rescue & Spay/Neuter Clinic is dedicated to the well-being of all cats and dogs in our community with emphasis on preventing pet overpopulation and on the sheltering and placement of surrendered or abandoned cats into loving, permanent homes.
We encourage any of our cat-loving supporters to join us in supporting the FCCRSNC! 3 out of 5 of the My Big Day gals are cat parents. 5 out of 5 of us love giving back to pet charities!

My Big Day is a BIG fan of any event that benefits people and businesses in multiple ways.
Great Plates is one of those events. The Fort Collins Downtown Business Association puts on this event every year, and it's benefits are three-fold:
- Restaurants receive business from potentially NEW customers that have never tried their restaurant before
- Customers get to try these restaurants at a great, discounted price
- The Food Bank of Larimer County benefits from this event, and in turn, raises enough money to serve thousands of meals!
The only problem we have is that the event only lasts two weeks, and we don't have enough time to try each restaurant!
For more information on this event, visit DowntownFortCollins.com --- but don't wait too long! The event this year is from March 1-14, 2014.

Today (12/10/13) is Colorado Gives Day!
On this ONE day, Coloradans pool extra money to donate to their favorite charities. You can give to these charities anytime of the year, of course... but 12/10 serves as a reminder to those who don't commonly give. It is a big, communal outcry, reminding folks of the good work these non-profits do in our community. No donation is too small. Every little bit makes a big difference.
Colorado Gives Day raised 15.4 million dollars in 2012. Let's help top that record, and give to the charities that serve our communities day in and day out!
As an added bonus, when giving on this day, so charities are receiving matches from local businesses, so your donation can go even farther!
