Trees Add Beauty, Value to Your Home


Trees Add Value, Beauty to Your Home

Trees don’t ask for much — dirt, water, sunlight. Yet they provide many benefits for you and your home: They add beauty and value to your property, cut your energy bills with the shade they provide, provide a home to wildlife, and improve the air you breathe.

To get the full benefits from your trees, choose the right one and plant it in the right location. Planting a tree that sheds its leaves annually on the west side of your house provides cooling shade in the summer. In winter, after it loses its leaves, the same tree will let in sunlight that cuts heating bills.

If you’re planting a new tree, think about its fully grown size and shape before you dig. Roots too close to your home could damage the foundation or block sewer lines. The wrong tree in the wrong place could actually lower your home’s appraised value.

Golf Tournament Benefits Texas Scottish Rite


Golf Tournament Benefits Texas Scottish Rite Hospital

 

Ebby’s Frisco Office invites you to participate in its 10th-Annual Charity Golf Tournament at Stonebriar Country Club on Tuesday, September 25. One-hundred percent of the proceeds from the event will benefit Texas Scottish Rite for Children in Frisco. Recognizing the growing need, Texas Scottish Rite is building a new ambulatory care center in Frisco, at the corner of Lebanon Road and the Dallas North Tollway.

 

“Ebby Frisco is proud to partner with Texas Scottish Rite for Children, which cares for children with orthopedic conditions, as well as certain related neurological and learning disorders, regardless of the family’s ability to pay,” says Kristi Davis, sales manager of Ebby’s Frisco Office.

 

Sponsorship of Ebby’s 10th-Annual Ebby Frisco Charity Golf Tournament offers a great experience for players while also providing the opportunity to advertise their company, says Davis. Most importantly, all support from this tax-deductible event will be directly donated to Texas Scottish Rite for Children in Frisco.

 

“Participants in the tournament will enjoy an exceptional golfing event,” says Davis. “There will be raffles, food, drinks and prizes – all in a fantastic environment that will be enjoyable for all.”

 

“Even if you don’t golf, you’re invited to come to the awards dinner, as well as the live and silent auctions at Stonebriar Country Club,” says Davis. “It’s sure to be a fun time benefiting a great cause, and is only $35. You may also attend the silent auction only for a $10 donation.”
