While the first day of summer does not officially begin until June 21st, we here at THE COLLECTION decided to kick-off summer a month early with our annual Employee Beach Bash. To show my gratitude for the hard work our employees contribute all year long, this special event is one that I look forward to year after year.


On Sunday, April 17th, our 315 employees and their families arrived at Crandon Park Amusement Center in Key Biscayne for a day of fun in the sun, delicious food, exciting games and each other’s company.

All the guests, no matter what age, spent the perfect and sunny day enjoying various activities including relaxing on the beach with complimentary chairs and umbrellas, riding along the boardwalk on beach cruiser bicycles, playing beach volleyball and soaking up the sun.


The options were endless for food choices on Sunday. The catering indulgences included our good friends at Shorty’s BBQ, sweet made-to-order crepes from the Crepe Maker, legendary pizza spot Sir Pizza, gourmet grilled cheese’s from the popular Ms. Cheezious and customizable ice cream cups from Coldstone. Let’s just say everyone was extremely full from these delicious treats.

In addition to the indulgent food, children and adults alike, delighted in snow cones, popcorn, Flash Tattoos, an inflatable basketball hoop, a blow up Mega Bus, an inflatable dragon slide, the splash zone, unlimited carousel rides and on-site field games.


As another Employee Beach Bash comes to an end, it is only the beginning of a new season with so many opportunities to come. Thank you to all of our employees for your consistent hard work day in and day out, I cannot wait until the next one!
