2014 Finance Factors Family of Companies Charity Golf Tournament Raises $20,000 for Big Brothers Big Sisters Hawaii

Finance Factors today announced a donation of $20,000 to Big Brothers Big Sisters Hawaii, a local nonprofit organization that provides one-to-one mentoring programs to children statewide. The funds were raised through the 2014 Finance Factors Family of Companies Golf Tournament, which took place Thursday, August 28 at Waikele Golf Club. Nearly 50 teams, including over 100 business leaders and community partners, participated in the tournament to raise funds for a great cause.

"On behalf of Big Brothers Big Sisters Hawaii and the over 1,400 "Bigs" and "Littles" we serve, I would like to express our deepest gratitude to Finance Factors for their generous and meaningful support," said Dennis Brown, president and chief executive officer of Big Brothers Big Sisters Hawaii. "These funds will not only have a huge impact on our operations statewide, but will also enable us to continue providing Hawaii's keiki with personal relationships that improve their lives for the better."

Big Brothers Big Sisters Hawaii fosters one-to-one friendships for at-risk children across the state. Founded in 1963, the organization's mentoring programs have proven to have a positive impact for youth in the areas of academics, socio-emotional and behavioral outcomes, high school graduation rates, avoidance of juvenile delinquency and college or career readiness.

"Finance Factors is proud to support Big Brothers Big Sisters Hawaii as our beneficiary for this year's Charity Golf Tournament," said Steven Teruya, president and chief operating officer of Finance Factors. "As a kamaaina company founded by local island families, giving back is a key focus year-round for the Finance Factors Family of Companies."

In addition to a day out on the golf course, tournament participants had a chance to enjoy special treats and snacks prepared by Finance Factors volunteers, including Steve Teruya's famous cheeseburger dogs (cheeseburgers in a hot dog bun), imu-roasted kalua pork sliders, and curated cocktails. Over 25 volunteers from Finance Factors Family of Companies helped to put on the event.

Finance Factors supports the local community year-round, donating over $80,000 to charitable causes annually. Established in 1952, the Finance Factors Family of Companies includes Finance Factors, Ltd., Hawaii's largest depository financial services loan company; Finance Insurance, Ltd., a full-service insurance agency; and Finance Realty Company, Ltd., responsible for the operational oversight of properties owned by the Family of Companies in Hawaii, Alaska and California.
