SUBJECT:    UC San Diego Staff Appreciation Holiday Breakfast

You are invited to celebrate the holiday season with your colleagues and friends at the UC San Diego Staff Association's 42nd Annual Holiday Breakfast, which will be held on Wednesday, Dec. 14, 2016, in the Price Center West Ballrooms. There will be four seatings: 6:30 – 7:30 a.m., 7:45 - 8:45 a.m., 9:00 – 10:00 a.m., and 10:15 – 11:15 a.m.

This year’s breakfast is free and will be provided to the first 1,200 UC San Diego staff members (300 per seating) who order their ticket online through Eventbrite between Nov. 16 at noon and Dec. 7 at noon. You can access Eventbrite and get additional information about the breakfast by visiting In order to ensure that as many staff as possible may attend the breakfast, employees are limited to one ticket per person.

The annual arts and crafts fair, featuring homemade items crafted by our UC San Diego staff members, will again be held in conjunction with the breakfast. You are also encouraged to bring a beanie baby for the NICU drive, items for the Homeless Veterans Drive or an unwrapped toy for our annual holiday toy drive. More information can be found at

In recognition of this annual event, I am approving one hour of administrative leave with pay to enable employees to attend the breakfast. All managers and supervisors are asked to allow employees to attend, as long as the absence does not infringe upon the performance of required job duties.

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