Hilton San Diego Resort and Spa on Mission Bay

Join us for the fourth annual Word by Word Gala benefiting the public radio show A Way with Words!

The Friends of A Way with Words — the radio show’s volunteer support committee — invite you to enjoy entertaining program, dinner, and cocktails.

The program celebrates language and recognizes three San Diego leaders: Mark Cafferty, Nancy Sasaki, and Dr. Mary Walshok, whose careers and accomplishments closely align with A Way with Words’ mission of raising the level of public discourse.

Of course, A Way with Words hosts Martha Barnette and Grant Barrett will be there to share language tidbits. And, we’ll have a special guest — quiz guy John Chaneski, our emcee for the evening.
