“Lights, Camera, Action!” We’ll be celebrating you – our superstars – at this year’s WVU Medicine-WVU Hospitals Employee Appreciation Picnic on Thursday, July 21.

With music, games, and an array of scrumptious food from Mario’s Fishbowl, this party is destined to make you feel like the star-studded employee that you are.

The night-shift event will be held from 12:30-3:30 a.m., and the day-shift event will take place from 10:30 a.m.-5 p.m. Both events will be held in front of the Blanchette Rockefeller Neurosciences Institute. Employees are reminded to bring their badge for entrance to the picnic and to participate in drawings for prizes.

During both the day- and night-shift event, we’ll roll out the red carpet for your grand entrance, and Double Barrel Dixie will provide music during the events. Both events will include a delicious menu of food, drinks, and desserts, including meat and vegetarian options.

You’ll also find plenty of games and activities provided by participating departments, including Bravo!, Chestnut Ridge Center, Compliance, Emergency Medicine, Health Information Management, and more. If your department would like to participate and has not, yet, signed up, please contact Stephanie Hoist.

WVU Medicine will run shuttle service from the WVU Medicine Corporate Office (ROC 2) to the picnic (and back) from 10 a.m.-2 p.m.

A big thank you to the Employee Appreciation Picnic vendors: Full Bowl Catering (Mario’s Fish Bowl), Double Barrel Dixie Entertainment, Cold Stone Creamery, Coca-Cola Bottling Company, Home City Ice, and McGuffy Tents!

The picnic committee is also grateful for those members of management who have signed up to volunteer at the event.
