Frisco Office Raises $65,000 for Children’s Hospital


On October 22, Ebby’s Frisco Office hosted its Seventh-Annual Charity Golf Tournament. One-hundred percent of the approximately $65,000 raised benefit the new, currently under-construction Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children in Frisco.

 

The charity tournament and after-party at Frisco’s prestigious Stonebriar Country Club has grown over the years, from 50 golfers to this year’s 132 golfers and more than 265 attendees at the awards dinner and silent auction.

 

Thank you to everyone involved in our seventh charity golf tournament for their service to our community. Your efforts remind us all of what’s truly important. We’re fortunate to serve a company founded by the legendary Ebby Halliday, whose impact on our community was extraordinary. We’re very happy to honor Ebby’s legacy by continuing to positively impact the North Texas community.

Cowboys Kick-Off Event Supports Deserving Students


 

Cowboys Kick-Off Event Supports Deserving Students

 

At Ebby Halliday, we’re big on little folks and the communities they create. We’re also proud to have been a return sponsor of the Dallas Cowboys Kickoff Luncheon benefiting the Dallas Cowboys Courage House at Happy Hill Farm.

 

AT&T Stadium in Arlington was the place to be yesterday afternoon as the playing field at Jerry World hosted hundreds for the annual luncheon benefiting The Dallas Cowboys Courage House at Happy Hill Farm. The event was attended by the entire Dallas Cowboys organization, Happy Hill Farm students and supporters from throughout the North Texas region.

 

Happy Hill Farm is a 500-acre farm that is home to North Central Texas Academy, an independent, accredited, coeducational, interdenominational college-preparatory, day, boarding and international school near Granbury. Boys and girls ages 5 to 18 live, work and study at Happy Hill Farm, which accepts no federal or state funding.

 

Traditionally, more than 90 percent of North Central Texas Academy’s budget has come from donations within the private community from caring individuals, corporations and foundations. The Academy seeks out underserved students and provides scholarships in order that these highly motivated boys and girls receive the opportunity to learn, commit, grow, and eventually assume positions of responsibility and leadership in society.

 

For many years Happy Hill Farm Academy has been near and dear to the Ebby Halliday Companies. The Ebby Halliday Library is located at Happy Hill’s new academic complex.
