Details about the TGFS Vendor Showcase

Spend an afternoon with 6,000+ UC Davis staff members as a participant in our Vendor Showcase. Can’t make the event or want even greater recognition? Consider one of the high-profile sponsorship opportunities.

NEW vendor opportunity! THE HEALTH AND WELLNESS ZONE (HWZ) – Health and wellness of our staff is a priority not only for UC Davis but for the University of California as a whole. This year, Staff Assembly will put a spotlight on health and wellness by offering a Health and Wellness Zone (HWZ) at the TGFS Picnic. This is a designated section of the vendor showcase dedicated to showcasing vendors with products and services directly related to health and wellness with the goal of helping educate staff about what is available to them in their community and beyond. 

The annual Thank Goodness for Staff (TGFS) Picnic and celebration is a staff appreciation event organized by UC Davis Staff Assembly and attended by over 6,000 UC Davis staff members. This is our 37th year celebrating the hard work and contributions of UC Davis staff and we greatly appreciate your support of the event and our staff and staff dependent scholarship program. 

Please direct any questions about TGFS to Staff Assembly Coordinator, Karen Kinser, at or (530) 752-0988.
