The Big Give


Thank You for Giving BIG in 2014! 

Stay tuned for details on The BIG Give 2015! Planning is well underway and we can’t wait to share the information with you!

The BIG Give 2014 was one fun circus under the Parisian lights! Our 2014 BIG Give – Under the Big Top Paris! was held at the Hyatt Regency on September 26, 2014. Guests enjoyed French inspired cuisine, danced all night to the White Ghost Shivers, and of course gave BIG!

It truly was a night to celebrate local philanthropy with Austin’s finest gathering together to honor our 2014 Patsy Woods Martin BIG Giver, Julie Stevenson of Safeplace and Any Baby Can!

In addition, two local nonprofits were recognized with our BIG and Little prizes. Mercedes Benz of Austin provided a cash prize of $10,000 which was awarded to YMCA of Austin for their excellence in donor relations while Trinity Development Center took home the RetailMeNot Little prize of $5,000. Congratulations to both organizations!

A very BIG thank you to all our sponsors and especially to The BIG Give Committee! This group of dedicated young women sure can throw a party and are truly emerging leaders in Austin! The evening could not happen without your hard work and support. THANK YOU!
