Sponsorship Opportunities

Join us for a special evening with the hosts of San Diego’s popular radio show A Way with Words, as well as with local educators and community leaders being honored before an audience of more than 300 public radio listeners and civic-minded San Diegans.

As a sponsor, you’ll partner with the beloved radio show A Way with Words, which has a devoted fan base both in San Diego County and hundreds of other cities across the country. Sponsorship opportunities include on-air underwriting credits airing in all those cities, as well as social media mentions, a VIP reception, and event-day materials.

Word by Word, held at the newly established Parq West in Banker’s Hill, will be an unforgettable evening of mingling, dinner, and a preview of Martha and Grant’s first national tour ever! It will be entertaining, enlightening, and inspiring.

Table sponsorships and wish list sponsorships available on a first come, first served basis. A limited number of individual tickets will go on sale shortly before the event. Use the request form below to make a pledge or download the form and sponsorship information here.
