Father’s Day was also special for Big Brothers / Big Sisters of Houston. Sunday several people turned out to support the Big ‘Believer Fine Art’ exhibition at the Vine Street Gallery near downtown. The exhibition featured artwork that celebrates the power of mentorship and creativity. Funds raised at the event will help Big Brothers Big Sisters create a database to close the gap for about one thousand children, most of them minorities, who are waiting for mentors.
