Sponsor The 2022 Lifelong Learning Award

WHYY is delighted to announce that Basketball Hall of Famer and four-time Olympic gold medalist Coach Dawn Staley will be our 2022 Lifelong Learning Award recipient. We hope you will join us for this special virtual fundraiser as we honor Coach Staley’s illustrious career and contributions to sports and activism.

Sponsoring WHYY’s Lifelong Learning Award provides your business the opportunity to be associated with an event and a brand that is trusted and admired. In 2021, over 1,800 people joined the virtual Lifelong Learning Award event.

The 2022 Lifelong Learning Award Event will take place virtually on Tuesday, May 17, 2022 at 5:15 p.m. Sponsors will enjoy the positive brand effect of aligning with this prestigious annual event.
