The OP Staff Assembly invites all employees to participate. Join us in Oakland’s Franklin building or at the UCPath Center from 12–1 p.m. for a lunchtime filled with costumes and holiday fun.

Show off your costume!

Demonstrate your creativity with a scary good costume and you might win a prize! This year, we’ll award prizes in the following categories:

  • Best monster costume
  • Best movie costume
  • Best other costume (individual)
  • Best group costume

The two locations will connect via Zoom to join in the fun of the afternoon. At 12:30 p.m., the judging will begin. UCPath Center colleagues will vote on the winning Oakland colleagues’ costumes and vice versa!
