The issue here is that the user had a Parametric Search view, but wanted to show their sponsored events at the top.
It is possible to have 2 views that are controlled by the same filters
This will allow for both views to be filtered.
Ok so what you need to do is select the view that you want to have the filters.
So you will create the search filters in that view.
Secondly on the view that you want to allow the filters to work on you are going to manually add the query filters to that view.
The easiest way to do this is to add the same set of frontend filters to the view and then remove them from the editor section. This will cause the actual query filters to remain. Save your view and then add both views to the same page.
