Staff Assembly welcomes swing shift staff to participate in their very own “TGFS After Dark”

May 8, 2019
Walter A. Buehler Alumni Center


Staff Assembly and the University of California, Davis extend their appreciation of swing shift employees at this year’s “Thank Goodness For Staff After Dark.” Every participating swing shift staff member will get a free meal and release time to participate in a mini Vendor Showcase, games, contests, and drawings! Campus leadership will be in attendance to personally thank swing shift employees for their hard work.

This year’s “TGFS in the Evening” will take place at the Walter A. Buehler Alumni Center from 8:00 p.m. -12:00 a.m. on May 8, 2019. There will be three food trucks and a dessert station setup, free swag from the Vendor Showcase, caricatures, games, and drawings for great prizes!

A designated person will be assigned in each department or unit to purchase tickets for their staff. The designated person will ask you for your dinner option and purchase the tickets with their department recharge number. Staff are welcome to attend the event with or without a meal ticket.

The Chancellor’s office pays for a large portion of each ticket with the department contributing the remaining $3.00 per staff meal ticket. Staff do not pay out-of-pocket for the event.

Ticket pick-up will only be offered during the day from 11:00am-1:00pm Monday April 29, 2019- Friday May 3, 2019 at the Walter A. Buehler Alumni Center. Please plan to have a staff representative pick up the swing shift meal tickets during this time.

This year, your meal ticket will be a TGFS wristband with tear-off stubs for your meal and for your dessert. Please be sure not to rip off the stubs before event, as this is how you will be able to receive your free meal. The last day for ticket purchasing will be April 26, 2019 at 5:00pm. We will not be allowing any additional ticket purchases after this date.

In addition to a delicious meal, 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!
