Ebby Halliday 100th Birthday Celebration

The Horatio Alger Association
Announces Concert Event with Greek Tenor
Mario Frangoulis, Horatio Alger Scholars &
 Dallas Real Estate Icon Ebby Halliday

Celebration to Honor Halliday on her 100th Birthday

 

The Horatio Alger Association of Distinguished Americans, Inc. (http://www.horatioalger.org/) is pleased to announce its concert event, Ebby 100, the Ebby Halliday 100th Birthday Celebration benefiting the Horatio Alger Association of Distinguished Americans, Inc. on March 9, 2011 at the Meyerson Symphony Center with The Dallas Symphony Orchestra and International tenor, Mario Frangoulis. The event will honor legendary Dallas entrepreneur and Horatio Alger Association lifetime member, Ebby Halliday on her 100th birthday with a special tribute. Halliday is well-known for her determination, business savvy and entrepreneurial spirit which drove her to create one of the most successful real estate companies in the nation.

"Ebby is not only an iconic businesswoman and philanthropist, but she exemplifies the true Horatio Alger spirit," said Tony Novelly, president and CEO of the Horatio Alger Association. "We are delighted to honor one of our very own on her 100th birthday as a way of celebrating six decades of work, dedication, and giving back to the community."  

Ebby stumbled upon real estate after lucratively selling hats in her own Dallas boutique. Her business was so successful that she was approached by the husband of one of her customers about selling 52 of his new single-family spec houses made of insulated cement. She made the move to real estate and went on to build the largest, independently-owned residential real estate firm in Texas and one of the largest in the United States. Today, there are 30 Ebby Halliday real estate offices with more than 1,600 sales associates. The Ebby Home Team is ranked as the number one independently owned residential real estate company in Dallas/Ft. Worth and Texas and is ranked number eight independent nationwide.

As her namesake company celebrates its 65th year in the business, Halliday says she has never forgotten her roots. "My philosophy came from my mother and grandparents, who taught me to do my best, give thanks to God for the blessing of life itself, practice the Golden Rule, help those less fortunate, and reward those who have helped me along the way. I also try to make gratitude my most often-used word." Halliday received the Horatio Alger Award in 2005. To learn more about her success story, visit http://www.horatioalger.org/member_info.cfm?memberid=hal05

Former Horatio Alger recipients Roger Staubach, T. Boone Pickens and H. Ross Perot will serve as co-chairs.  Steven Durham and his wife Barbara will serve as the event chairs for the evening. Steve is the son of the late Charles W. Durham, a Horatio Alger Member.

The Horatio Alger event will also honor Horatio Alger scholars from Texas who have persevered through personal challenges and adversities to achieve the Texas Horatio Alger Scholarship.

Prior to the concert, the scholars will share their Horatio Alger stories from the podium so that concert guests can learn more about the Horatio Alger mission at work.

The Horatio Alger Association offers scholarship opportunities in each state annually ranging from $2,500 to $20,000. To learn more on Horatio Alger scholarship programs and how to apply, visit https://www.horatioalger.org/scholarships/index.cfm.

International Ambassador Mario Frangoulis will be the featured performer in a two-hour concert with the symphony orchestra. Mario Frangoulis has helped raise awareness of the mission and programs of the Horatio Alger Association since April 2006 and was named International Ambassador of the Horatio Alger Association in December 2008 because of his love for mentoring and his ability to relate to teens. Like characters from the Horatio Alger books, he has overcome challenges in his own life, including being separated from his parents at age four. He often speaks of how music has been a source of healing and expression throughout his life. Mario believes in the mission of the Association, its scholarship program, and the power of encouraging people to strive for their full potential.

Mario is best known for his powerful and charismatic live performances. After two highly acclaimed international releases through Sony Classical, which were fixtures on the Billboard Classical Crossover Charts, "Sometimes I Dream" and "Follow Your Heart," Mario has continued on a diverse path both in the studio and through live performances. This year will mark the release of his new international album.  For more on Mario, visit http://www.mariofrangoulis.com/.
