TGFS 2018 Picnic Tickets

May 16 - 17, 2018


Thank Goodness for Staff (TGFS) is a springtime celebration organized by UC Davis Staff Assembly to honor all UC Davis staff members. The annual event celebrates the hard work and contributions of UC Davis staff and we invite you to join in the fun.

A designated person in your department or unit should assign one person to purchase tickets for their staff. They will ask you for your lunch option and purchase the tickets with their department recharge number using the link below. Staff are welcome to attend the event without a meal ticket and bring their own lunch.

The Chancellor pays a large portion of each individual ticket and the department pays the remaining meal cost. Departments pay $3.00 per staff meal ticket and $12.00 for student-staff meal tickets. Staff do not pay out-of-pocket for the event.

PLEASE NOTE:  Staff may exchange tickets with other staff, unfortunately TGFS will not be responsible for exchanging tickets. Once you receive your ticket, please keep it safe as it is required to receive your meal at the picnic and cannot be replaced.

In addition to a delicious lunch, staff are treated to prize drawings, freebies and other services at the various on and off-campus booths in our Vendor Showcase. Every year there’s special entertainment and fun to be had by all attendees. Best of all, it’s free! Isn’t it great to be UC Davis staff!
