Just back from an incredibly beautiful memorial service for Ebby Halliday. Among the thousands in attendance at Park Cities Baptist Church was Communities Foundation of Texas’ Main Man Brent Christopher.
Despite having the daunting task of being leading the charge to set a record-breaking North Texas Giving Day today, he had taken his place to honor the Duchess of Dallas, along with a former First Lady, Dallas mayors past and present and people of all walks of life.
One of the first to speak was The Ebby Halliday Companies CEO/President Mary Frances Burleson, who said that in addition to the day being a tribute to Ebby, it was also North Texas Giving Day and she knew that Ebby would truly appreciate if friends would donate to one of Ebby’s favorite nonprofits — Happy Hill Farm and Academy, Ebby’s at the YW and The Ebby House Juliette Fowler Communities — before the midnight deadline.
Brent sat amazed that even in death Mary Frances had taken the time to make such a gracious suggestion. But then Mary Frances was just doing what Ebby would have wanted. So, the Ebby legacy continues.
