Frisco Golf Tournament Benefits Texas Scottish Rite Hospital

Members of Ebby’s Frisco Office recently presented a check for $107,500 to representatives of Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children. The check represents the proceeds of the office’s Ninth-Annual Charity Golf Tournament, held September 18. One-hundred percent of the proceeds from the event benefit Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children in Frisco, which is building a new ambulatory care center at the corner of Lebanon Road and the Dallas North Tollway.


Frisco Golf Tournament Benefits Texas Scottish Rite Hospital


“We are so incredibly pleased with the event and the results of this year’s charity golf tournament, our most-successful one to date,” says Kristi Davis, sales manager of Ebby’s Frisco Office. “We’re proud to support Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children, and help aid in the care of children in Frisco and beyond.”

“This year we raised record-breaking proceeds to benefit one of our favorite charities,” says Katie Gallivan, an agent in Ebby’s Frisco office, a longtime tournament volunteer and the event’s coordinator. “We anticipate next year will be just as fun for all involved.”


Ebby’s Frisco Office is proud to partner with Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children, which cares for children with orthopedic conditions, such as scoliosis, clubfoot, hand disorders, hip disorders and limb length differences, as well as certain related neurological disorders and learning disorders such as dyslexia, regardless of the family’s ability to pay.

A New Path to Your Dream

Flying over the suburbs of Melbourne

You may not be ready to buy a house today, but you can still live in the home of your dreams with help from Ebby Halliday Realtors and Home Partners of America.

Home Partners of America expands rental inventory options by casting a wider net to include properties not usually available for rent. For sellers, a Home Partners-qualified home can expand your potential buyer pool by marketing the property for lease, as well as for sale. If a qualified renter is interested, Home Partners of America may buy your home with a quick close and in cash.

Ebby Halliday Realtors can help you find or sell a Home Partners-qualified home. Here’s how it works:

1. Get Approved

• If an application is approved, Home Partners will outline the maximum monthly rent of the home for which the prospective household qualifies.

2. Find a Home Partners qualified home

• Prospective households will work with a Realtor to find a Home Partners-qualified home.
• Once a home is identified and approved by Home Partners, Home Partners will attempt to purchase the home. The outcome depends on certain conditions being met such as agreeing on a purchase price with the seller, a satisfactory inspection, attorney review of the purchase contract, and other closing conditions being satisfied.

3. Home Partners purchases the qualified home

• Once Home Partners’ offer for the home is accepted by the seller, prospective households will be required to sign a one-year lease for the home as well as a Right to Purchase Agreement.

4. Right to Purchase

• The household has the right to purchase the home at any time during their residency at the pre-set purchase price. If the household chooses not to renew the lease, they can walk away without penalty.

7 Tips for Hosting Thanksgiving Dinner

Thanksgiving is right around the corner and that means it’s time to start planning for the big day. Preparing a meal can be stressful regardless of whether it’s for a few friends or a large gathering, so we’ve rounded up seven important tips to help your Thanksgiving meal run smoothly. All these tasks can all be done in advance, leaving you more time to catch your breath between now and when your guests arrive.
1. Take inventory

Make sure you have all of the cookware and kitchen tools needed to cook the menu you have planned. Broke your pie dish? Only have a dessert thermometer? Now is the time to grab the items that will help your meal succeed.


2. Make a prep list

Cooking a turkey, side dishes, and dessert can be hard to balance regardless of the size of your kitchen. Figure out in advance what recipes can be made ahead, which ones will take the longest to cook, and what dishes can share the oven space.


3. Make ahead and freeze

There are many dishes that can be prepared in advance and will freeze well. Cranberry sauce, mashed potatoes, dinner rolls, and sweet potato casserole are all good options to make ahead.


4. Thaw the bird

If you have a frozen turkey, make sure you leave ample time to thaw it. The rule of thumb is for every four pounds in weight, the turkey must thaw one day.


5. Utilize a cooler

Fridge space is prime real estate during Thanksgiving, but purchasing a cooler can help. Fill one with ice and you now have a space to temporarily store all the random jellies and condiments from your fridge that you can’t seem to part with, leaving you more space in the fridge to stock up on menu essentials.


6. Ask for help outside of the kitchen

Try not to overcrowd your kitchen by having guests help with tasks such as serving drinks, hanging coats, and entertaining children. If space allows, set up the drink station away from the kitchen.


7. Keep food warm

If the turkey takes too long to cook, don’t fret. Slow cookers, thermoses and microwaves are all great options for keeping dishes warm until you’re ready to enjoy.

Ebby’s Home for the Holidays: Scardello Artisan Cheese

A cheese board is a never-fail addition to any holiday gathering, whether it’s a small friendly get-together, or a large family celebration. With that in mind, we visited our friends at Scardello Artistan Cheese in Oak Lawn to learn how to create the perfect one. Watch the video below to see how you can ace your next cheese board.

Ace Your Cheese Board

• Include a combination of three firmnesses of cheese – soft, medium-firm and hard.

• Feature different animal milks (i.e. cow, goat, sheep).

• Add a twist by featuring different regions of the world.

• Include a variety of accompaniments like cornichons, dried fruits, nuts, olives or charcuterie.

• When displaying a cheese board, set out a knife for each cheese on the platter. This way, the flavors won’t be compromised.

• Set cheese out for at least 30 minutes to reach room temperature.

• Before any guests arrive, cut a few slices of cheese and arrange them on the board. Present each cheese with its own knife and allow your guests to continue to cut slices for themselves. These measures will prevent the cheese from drying out and allow the full flavors to emerge.

Still unsure of where to start? Don’t be afraid to venture into Scardello and ask for help. The knowledgable staff will work with you to create the perfect cheese board for your palate or gathering.

Happy cheese hunting!
