50 CAP Points Giveaway Winner 20170901 (1)


Last week we held a contest to give one lucky winner 50 CAP points to score some Collins gear! Our winner was Taylar Sidhu from the Sacramento branch! Congrats, Taylar! And a big thank you to everyone that entered.

We’re also happy to report that the Collins Instagram has been receiving a lot of love lately! We’ve jumped from 10 followers to 65 followers just this week! 

Start your engines…. and save the date!

Fast & Furious

Do your interests include cars? Do they include racing? What started as a conversation between a few Collins employees has led to getting together after-hours. So, be sure to leave the evening of Wednesday, September 20th free, because it’s time to get fast and furious!

If you are interested in attending or participating, please check out Sacramento Raceway’s website for ticket pricing and rules and regulations. This is not a company sponsored event; just a grudge match between Wen Luu and Krish Prasad.


Heart Walk: You’ve Been Challenged!

During Aiden’s visit last month, Jorge offered to donate $100 towards the American Heart Association’s Heart Walk Campaign this coming September 30th.

He also challenged the staff to match his donation or donate more! Are you up to the challenge?

What’s New in the Field?

Lots of progress is being made on the Old Sacramento Boardwalk! Here is our team hard at work, replacing all of the old, worn wood with tile that actually mimics the look of old wood! How cool is that? Good work, guys!
