We are bringing our friends together to celebrate our 30th Anniversary!  Join us for an enchanting evening of gourmet dining and cocktails, LIVE and silent auctions, dancing, casino games, and the prestigious 14th Annual Ebby Awards.  Past auction items include ski vacations, tropical tee-times, and weekend getaways with the airfare included!

Proceeds from the 30th Anniversary Gala - Auction & Casino Night will support our mission to help young women break the generational cycles of abuse, neglect, poverty and homelessness through self-reliance and independence.

Co-Chairs:  Suzanne Jaco, Angela Maverick and Leslie Simmons



The 14th Annual Ebby Awards will be presented on April 21, 2018, to recognize an individual and an organization who have made significant achievements for the advancement of girls and/or women in North Texas.  The award is named for Ebby Halliday Acres for her commitment and contributions to women in our community and will be presented by Our Friends Place. 

Our Friends Place will accept nominations for the 2018 Ebby Award beginning October 2017.  More information about nominating an individual or an organization will be available soon.
