On Saturday February 20, 2010, the Factors Southwest team “Pink Punch” participated in “Par it in Pink;” a golf tournament at Starfire. The event was organized by Two Gals Events and was intended to raise funds for the Susan G. Komen For The Cure organization. Not many know the foundation was organized by Susan’s sister Nancy in 1982, and has galvanized women from around the country to stand up and take an active role to raise breast cancer awareness. Saturday was no different in bringing together women from a variety of backgrounds for a common cause.

Factors Southwest was proud to be a major sponsor of this event. We met some great women and made some nice connections. One of the contests at the tournament was “best decorated cart;” and FSW was determined to win. Tee off wasn’t until 8:00 am, but the FSW “Pink Punch” team was at Starfire at 6:30 putting the finishing touches on the work of art that totally nailed the contest.

Seriously, we met so many businesses at “Par it in Pink” who didn’t mind sharing how much trouble they were having obtaining traditional banking loans. Once they understood what FSW did and how we could assist their business with working capital, we could open the dialog to specifics on what FSW could do for their business. Aside from the support Factors Southwest was able to provide the Komen Foundation, team FSW enlightened our new business friends with finance options I’m not quite sure they new were available to them. 

At the end of the day, “Par it in Pink” rewarded Factors Southwest with a couple of commemorative bottles of wine for best decorated cart; and FSW made business connections that will change the finance direction of our new business friends towards profitability. What happened Saturday reaffirms what we believe strongly at FSW; “we are contributing to economic growth one invoice at a time.”
