Frisco Moms Care Online Auction

Frisco Moms Care is gearing up for our 4th annual online auction. Due to the generosity of many local businesses and bidders, we were able to raise more than $14,000 last year!

Our fundraising team has set the goal even higher this year at $15,000. We hope we can count on you to help us meet this goal! If you are interested in donating an item or gift basket for the auction, please feel free to reach out to fundraising@fmcares.org.

We are staffed exclusively by volunteers and all funds raised are used to benefit recipients of the organization. We currently serve families in need in Frisco, Frisco ISD, Little Elm, and Little Elm ISD and hope to expand to other surrounding cities in the near future. Our auction is one of our main sources of income and your participation helps us raise the necessary funding needed to continue to provide clothing, housewares, meals, school supplies, personal care items, winter coats, and holiday gifts to our families.

The Magdalen House's Leave a Legacy Dinner: An Evening with Mrs. Laura Bush

The 2019 Leave a Legacy Dinner: An Evening with Mrs. Laura Bush – celebrating life, recovery and freedom from alcoholism for both women and their families of North Texas – is the signature event for The Magdalen House.

The Leave a Legacy Dinner is an annual fundraiser that allows The Magdalen House to provide no-cost, peer-implemented programming that gives alcoholic women the opportunity to obtain long-term sobriety and a renewed quality of life, at any stage of her recovery. For over 20 years, the organization hosted an annual golf tournament to encourage philanthropy. By evolving the annual fundraiser to the Leave a Legacy Dinner– an evening consisting of inspiration, women’s empowerment and agency awareness – The Magdalen House now also strives to reduce the stigma on alcoholism by educating the Dallas community on a solution to permanent recovery.
