SUBJECT:    Annual UC San Diego Staff Appreciation Holiday Breakfast

The UC San Diego Staff Association and I are pleased to invite you to
the 45th annual UC San Diego Staff Appreciation Holiday Breakfast. The
event will be held on Thursday, Dec. 19, 2019, in the Price Center
Ballrooms from 7:00am 10:00am.

Starting Tuesday, December 10th at noon, free tickets will be available
to the first 1,500 UC San Diego staff members who order online through
Eventbrite. For tickets and additional information about the breakfast,
please visit In order to
ensure that as many staff as possible are able to attend the breakfast,
employees are limited to one ticket per person.

Parking will be available in the Gilman Parking Structure. Any campus
parking permit can be used in a V or B space between 6:30 am and
11:00 am Thursday, December 19th only. Those without a parking permit
should purchase a visitor permit at the Gilman Parking Structure or via
the Parkmobile app. Limited cart service will also be available from
the parking structure for those who need additional assistance.

Representatives from the Veterans Staff Association will be on hand to
collect donations for Veterans Village San Diego. They are collecting
travel size toiletries of shampoo, lotion, shaving cream, deodorant,
soap, toothpaste, toothbrushes, combs, razors, etc., as well as new
t-shirts, underwear, and socks in all sizes for men, women, and children
and new or gently used clothing, particularly jackets and sweatshirts.

Additionally, Volunteer50 is looking for volunteers to help at the
Breakfast. All volunteers will receive a breakfast ticket. For more
information, visit

In recognition of this annual event, I am approving one hour of
administrative leave with pay to enable employees to attend the
breakfast. Therefore, supervisors may grant employees one hour of
administrative leave as long as the absence does not infringe upon the
performance of required job duties or patient care.

I hope you will join us for this annual fun-filled holiday tradition.
