Dallas, TX (PRWEB) May 7, 2010
Ebby Halliday, Realtors, the largest independently owned residential real estate company in Texas and ranked as 12th in production nationwide, has teamed up with the North Texas Super Bowl XLV Host Committee as part of its 65th anniversary celebration. The yearlong campaign includes exciting community events, star-studded concerts and promotions marking the arrival of the big game on Feb. 6, 2011. It’s all part of the company’s super year of anniversary celebrations, themed 65 Years of Service, that bring together its 30 offices and the communities which it serves.
“The 65th anniversary of Ebby Halliday, Realtors is an exciting milestone not only for our company, but with the Super Bowl XLV Host Committee on the team, it’s an exciting year for all of North Texas,” said Mary Frances Burleson, president and CEO of the Ebby Halliday Companies. “Our theme of 65 Years of Service reiterates the three founding principles on which our company was built – service to the client, service to the industry and service to the community. Ebby is known as the Home Team and we are excited to be on the Super Bowl XLV Host Committee’s team as we together celebrate this history-making event.”
Making everyday count, investing in a dream and thriving on change are a few of the principles that helped Ebby Halliday guide her company for over six decades. In 1945, Ebby was asked by the husband of one her hat clients to sell 52 insulated cement houses. A challenge she accepted and one that was the springboard for the steady growth of Ebby Halliday, Realtors as we know it today – now comprised of three brands with 30 offices serving more than 12,000 square miles in North Texas. When asked about her secret to success, Ebby will often state that it is hard work and customer service that makes the difference. She also quickly adds, that as Roger Staubach wrote in the foreword of her recent biography, “Ebby and I have several things in common, one is we were both blessed with great teams.”
“This will truly be a year to remember as we celebrate 65 years of doing business in North Texas,” says Ms. Halliday. “I, along with the rest of the Ebby Halliday family, look forward to a great year and one of economic growth and recovery for our region, and prosperity for the many residents that we serve every year and who call this area home.”
As a sponsor of the North Texas Super Bowl XLV Host Committee, Ebby Halliday, Realtors will be involved in the community as the biggest event to ever come to our region takes place, benefitting philanthropic programs and businesses throughout North Texas. In addition to several ticket giveaways, the Ebby Halliday Companies will be part of the 2010 State Fair of Texas as the title sponsor of the Host Committee’s Century in the Making Pavilion, where the 100 Greatest Moments in North Texas Football History will be announced, culminating months of public voting.
Ebby Halliday, Realtors is also giving away tickets to the first ever Super Bowl Kick-Off Concert series. Rock icon, Sting, will perform on May 22 in Dallas' new AT&T Performing Arts Center's Winspear Opera House. The final concert will take place in Cowboys Stadium in September, with the featured artist to be announced later this month.
“From the very beginning the Host Committee wanted a yearlong build-up to extend the Super Bowl experience to the community,” says Bill Lively, president and CEO of the North Texas Super Bowl XLV Host Committee. “With Ebby Halliday, Realtors participating as part of its 65 Years of Service campaign it is a touchdown for all involved by underscoring how important this is for our area. Ebby Halliday, Realtors is an ideal teammate for the Super Bowl Host Committee and a valued member of our business community.”
The Ebby Halliday Companies will host additional promotions throughout the year where lucky winners will have the chance to win multiple tickets to a 2010 fall game in the Dallas Cowboys Luxury Suite at Cowboys Stadium as well as tickets to several special events included in the Super Bowl XLV Host Committee festivities.
