Faculty/Staff Appreciation Weekend:
December 7-8

Since a downpour interfered with Staff Appreciation Day October 19, Human Resources and its partners in Athletics and the Museum have scheduled a follow-up weekend of activities--and this time, there's no need to choose because faculty/staff families can attend both dates.

Men's Basketball--Penn vs. Lehigh Saturday, December 7 7 p.m. The Palestra

All faculty and staff get free tickets with PennCard, and guest tickets at $2 each, for the Penn vs. Lehigh basketball game, where the highlight at halftime is a chance to win $5000 in the PNC Mid-Court Challenge Shooting Contest. Each ticket also nets the holder a free beverage and hotdog. Autographs will be offered after the game by Penn basketball players and coaches for youths under 12. Complimentary parking: Lot 1 (Walnut Street between 32nd and 33rd Streets) with Penn Card.

Tickets and coupons can be picked up at the Weightman Hall Ticket Office, M-F 10 a.m.-4:30 p.m. or at the door starting at 4 p.m. Tickets are also good for the 5 p.m. Eastern vs. Cabrini game that precedes the Lehigh contest.

'Peace Around the World' Sunday, December 8 1-4 p.m. The University Museum

There's a Kwanzaa Celebration, plus storytelling and magic, puppet shows and jugglers, face-painting, dance workshop and a demonstration on making Ginger Bread Houses--all at the University Museum, which opens another of its World Culture Days free to faculty and staff and their family members with PennCard. At the door (33rd and Spruce Streets), families receive tickets to the individual events and coupons for refreshments (cupcake and punch for children under twelve; beverage and pastry at the Coffee shop for older children and for adults). Complimentary parking: Lot 7 (32nd and Convention Avenue) with PennCard.
