Big Day at the Lake is an annual event sponsored by a group of Lake Norman community volunteers under the leadership of Dave Yochum.

The event provides a chance for kids to enjoy a day of fun on the lake, who would not ordinarily have an opportunity to do so.
In 2005 Dave Yochum organized a group of volunteers and invited the "bigs" and "littles" of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Charlotte to enjoy a day of fun, boating, fishing, tubing and swimming on the lake.
These children would not ordinarily have the opportunity to partake in any of these activities.
All donations are tax deductible and go directly to Big Day and the Big Brothers/Big Sisters program.
