The Marketing & PR Department hosted for the first time a Provost Picnic “Family Fun Day” that took place in the green area of the palace grounds on Thursday 17th February, 2013. With more than 150 Alfaisal staff and their families attending, the employee geared event, where they got the chance to meet together in an informal event and introduce their families in a day full of activities and entertainment. The major idea of bringing this event together was to promote for a friendly family environment, off working hours and off usual campus routine, in a beautiful climate where kids can enjoy scheduled activities such as playing in bouncy castle, clown entertainment and dancing, different options for face painting, Cotton candy, popcorn and Ice-cream treatment in the perfect venue with the green gazebo’s surrounded by tables and chairs for guests to sit in.

There was also a Raffle prize draw on winning an invitation dinner for two guests at Alfasaliyah Hotel. The event was concluded by a group picture and a welcoming cake from the provost to all guests.
