Ebby’s Frisco Office Raises $76,000 for TSRHC


Ebby’s Frisco Office Raises $76,000 for TSRHC

 

Ebby’s Frisco Office recently hosted its Eighth-Annual Charity Golf Tournament. One-hundred percent of the proceeds, which totaled more than $76,000, will benefit Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children in Frisco. Recognizing the growing need, Scottish Rite is building a new ambulatory care center in Frisco, at the corner of Lebanon Road and the Dallas North Tollway.

 

This year’s charity tournament and after-party were held at Frisco’s prestigious Stonebriar Country Club. The event 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.

 

Stonebriar is one of the finest private country clubs in Texas and we were thrilled they once again hosted our charity tournament. Everyone had a great time benefitting a great cause. Their efforts remind us all of what’s truly important.

 

Today, at the Frisco Office’s annual Thanksgiving luncheon, Macaluso and our wonderful Frisco Associates presented Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children with a check for $76,145. Congratulations to everyone involved in this extraordinary effort!

Frisco’s Held Wins Prestigious Award


post

 

At the recent Texas Association of Realtors Winter Meeting in Austin Ebby Frisco Associate Meredith Held was recognized for her determination and contribution to Texas real estate.

 

Held, who is a member of the Collin County Association of Realtors and a past president of the association, won the Government Affairs Strike Force Award for initiating the “Bury the Lines” campaign in Frisco. “Bury the Lines” is an effort to have overhead high-voltage transmission lines that are proposed to run along a large and primary street in Frisco, be buried underground.

 

In 2013, Meredith asked CCAR for its support in fighting the proposed lines. In 2014, Adam Majorie, CCAR’s Government Affairs Director, requested funds from the Issues Mobilization Political Action Committee and was successful in obtaining funds to print yard signs, have an informational posting on an electronic billboard in the area, secure a lobbyist, and hire a law firm to represent those who wish to testify before the Texas Public Utility Commission.

 

Due to her diligence and commitment to retain Frisco’s property values, Meredith was awarded. “I was extremely surprised and very honored to receive this recognition,” she says.

 

Meredith, thank you for your service to our industry and congratulations on a well-deserved honor!

Frisco Office Hosts Chelsea Santas Event


 

As the holiday shopping season kicks off in earnest, Ebby’s Frisco Office will host “Chelsea Santas for City House!” This prime seasonal shopping opportunity takes place November 5-6 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and features the works of internationally renowned artist Chelsea Fair.

 

A resident of Frisco, Fair has been handcrafting Old World-style Santa Clauses and his different facades in her workshop for more than 20 years. Today those handcrafted Kriss Kringles can be found on the shelves at Neiman Marcus stores, in the White House and in the homes of celebrities nationwide.

 

Fair enjoys humanizing her Santas by creating different personas, including a cowboy, a golfer and one of the top sellers, Pancho Navidad. Each one of Santa’s costumes is made by hand and sewn out of faux furs and velvet.

 

Chelsea Santas for CityHouse! takes place at Ebby’s Frisco Office at 1415 Legacy Drive, Suite 100, and offers very attractive discount pricing. A portion of the proceeds benefit the nonprofit City House, which provides emergency shelter and transitional residential services to children and young adults who are in need due to abuse, neglect or homelessness.
