BrandSource Financial Holds ‘Tropical Escape’ Drawing

By Andy Kriege, YSN

BrandSource Financial (BSF) held a drawing this week for a five-day “Tropical Escape” travel package in a member giveaway originally scheduled for May.

YourSourceNews anchor Allyssa Baird hosted the raffle on Facebook Live with BSF program director Chris Moore. The lucky winner: Don Frei of Howard Hughes Appliance in Moscow, Idaho.

The vacation for two included $400 in spending cash.

“It came as a total surprise, as I had already forgotten that we were entered in the contest,” Frei later told YSN.  “I never win anything, so I was taken aback when Chris called to let me know.”

Frei said he will decide over the next few weeks when and where he would like to visit, but confessed to having “palm trees dancing in my head.”

More certain is Frei’s admiration for Moore. “Chris has always been more than willing to try to do what we ask,” he said. “Working with her and BSF has no doubt helped this business tremendously.” He further advised fellow BrandSource members that “Anyone who has financing needs should take advantage of this in-house solution — you are building your own future.”

Said Moore, “I couldn’t be happier to finally have a winner” following a five-month, COVID-related delay. “Thanks to all the members who continue to support BSF and your buying group, and a big congratulations to Don and the good people from Howard Hughes in Idaho!”

BSF is BrandSource’s member-owned finance company, which provides dealers with significant savings on their wholesale financing needs. All profits are returned to participating members in the form of annual cash distributions, and Moore is forecasting another record year for the 10-year-old program.

Thanks to BSF, it’s a safe bet that that Frei will never again utter the words “I never win anything”!
