When Lake Highlands volleyball team member Emily Obenhaus was diagnosed with melanoma, her teammates and her community decided to raise cancer awareness through their “Cats for the Cure” campaign and fundraiser. The team began selling pink “Cats for the Cure” t-shirts for $10 with all proceeds being donated to various cancer resesearch foundations in honor of Emily.
Ebby Associates Glen Christy, Robin Norcross and Jason Thomas were quick to jump on board by sponsoring the campaign with an initial order of 72 t-shirts. The shirts were an instant hit and the Christy-Norcross-Thomas Team placed three more orders. So far, 530 shirts have been sold which has raised more than $4,500 for the cause!
The team was on hand at a recent Lady Cats game to present checks to two cancer research organizations.
The Ebby Halliday Companies salute the efforts of the Christy-Norcross-Thomas Team and encourages everyone to keep Emily in their thoughts and prayers.

Tomorrow officially marks the first day of Fall and here’s a little something to get you in the mood. Our friends at Dr. Delphinium Designs & Events were kind enough to once again lend their creative genius to turn one of our beautiful listings into a true work of art.
This particular home is located on famed Strait Lane in Dallas’ Preston Hollow area and is listed by Ellen Terry Sales Associate Lynn Gardner Collins. The final product will appear on the cover of an upcoming magazine (we’ll keep you posted).
While the photo definitely gives you that Fall feeling, in order to meet the magazine deadline, this masterpiece was created and photographed in early September. Only Dr. D could make several hundred pumpkins appear before they were officially in season and even more impressive was how quickly they made them disappear the day after.
It was close to 100 degrees outside that day and that very evening the infamous monsoon rains began, so the timing couldn’t have been more perfect – you’ll notice in the video that the photo was actually taken as the drizzle began. Not even rain can put a damper on the amazing work of photographer Sean Gallagher.
Here’s how this year’s ad was created:
And you can see the making of last year’s ad here.
Thanks to Kelly, Charles and all our friends at Dr. Delphinium and Sean Gallagher for all your help with this project – the end result was fantastic!
The outcome of yesterday’s game may not have been ideal, but the new $1.2 billion Cowboys Stadium made its official debut in true Texas style – with a black tie gala Saturday night hosted by Gene & Jerry Jones.

Today, the T. Boone Pickens Training Center & Guest Lodge was officially dedicated at the Happy Hill Farm Academy campus in Granbury. Happy Hill founders Ed & Gloria Shipman along with staff, students, local dignitaries, donors and Ebby were on hand to welcome T. Boone Pickens when he saw the completed project for the first time.
This complex will be utilized to train those interested in duplicating the Academy program in other regions of the country and allow group meetings and retreats on the campus.
Happy Hill Farm Academy has always been a near and dear to the Ebby Halliday Companies, in fact, it was Ebby who introduced Mr. Pickens to Happy Hill a few years ago. The Ebby Halliday Library is located in Happy Hill’s new academic complex.
