Service to the Community


Post

 

Giving back to the community is a founding principle of Ebby Halliday Realtors so we’re happy to report that our Preston Plano Parkway Office and Texas Premier Title, an Ebby Halliday affiliated company, recently raised $1,216 for the Women’s Auxiliary of Children’s Medical Center Plano. The money was raised through a raffle at the offices’ annual, fun-filled Mistletoe Market featuring unique gifts, exquisite jewelry, gourmet hot cocoa, food, holiday music and more. The offices chose Children’s because Preston Plano Parkway Associate Sarah Fallin is an active member of the hospital’s Women’s Auxiliary.

 

Children’s Medical Center Plano extends the world-class service of the Children’sHealth system to the growing number of families north of Dallas and beyond. Its medical staff includes specialists from UT Southwestern, providing a vast base of talent and knowledge. Located at 7601 Preston Road in Plano, the campus sits on a 155-acre site with green space preserved to provide an environment of healing and tranquility for patients and families.
