Fun in the Sun
Even though we take our work very seriously, we try not to take ourselves too seriously. Here is a taste of some ways it's a blast to be part of the Sun Family!
Annual Sun Tailgater
Each year, we band together and hit the road to Autzen for our Annual Sun Tailgater. Somebody say S'CO DUCKS!? We share a delicious meal, enjoy pre-game shows, and mob inside for the first home game of season with all the Duck Spirit in the world. Rain or shine, we have a blast. And as you know — it never rains in Autzen Stadium.
We love having traditions such as this to enjoy time together as a company outside of work and also support our beloved local football team.
Keys for Hope
We are blessed with the opportunities we have to give back to the community. Keys for Hope is one of our signature ways in which we do just that. You can read all about our 2022 Keys for Hope winner, Shelley, and her story by clicking here.
We spend a lot of our time fixing cars, so it's a fun change of pace when we get to enjoy driving them! As a team, we try to make it out to the track every year or two for some good ol' fashioned Go Kart racing.
Sun participated for the first time this year, 2022, in the Blackberry Jam Festival Parade in Lowell, Oregon. Between the whole team, we had six vehicles in the parade and Sun Advisor, Kristy, won Most Popular for her train — which was a huge hit with the children.
We loved the experience and definitely will be participating again in the future!
Lake Day, Hooray!
More fun in the Sun, what can we say?
Any chance we get to do something fun together, we take it! This event was put on by our General Manager, Bryan, and his wife, Breezy. They worked hard to feed everyone and organize a company-wide raffle with some killer prizes. It was a day for the books!
A summer staple. Hayward Nights is a monthly car show that we do at our Campus store — located just a block from iconic Hayward Field. Sun employees bring out their classics, and we all enjoy each other's company. Find us there every first Friday of summer! Drop by, we'd love to have you there.
Function for Junction
It should be no surprise that we are all about local car shows here at Sun! Craig Noel, Owner, actually made the trophy for the winner of "Best in Show" for Function for Junction. It went home with the Owner of the Classic featured above: a 1949 Cadillac Coupe.
Needless to say, we love car shows!
