Big For A Day
On July 8, 2016, ACE’s Cedrick Crosby and George Ikonomou partnered with Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Houston and United Way of Greater Houston for Big For A Day. Big For A Day events allow corporate volunteers the opportunity to be a Big Brother or Big Sister for a day. They give volunteers a way to learn more about mentoring and provide positive adult role models to those children still waiting to be matched. July’s event took place at The Museum of Health in Houston, TX and involved volunteers from ACE, ConocoPhillips, FMC Technologies, and Hess Corporation. The day included guided tours and hands on lab experiments such as extracting DNA from food samples and identifying microorganisms under a microscope. Our thanks goes out to all for a great time!
