Today we’d like to introduce you to Evan Golden.
Evan Golden, a humanitarian at heart is the recipient of “Young Leaders in Philanthropy” and he continues to give back and be a leader in the community. You may have seen Evan in national TV ads for Ovaltine, reciting that famous line, “More Ovaltine, please!”, or on various MTV series or more recently for his lead role on the reality show Ivana Young Man, hosted by Ivana Trump. A true Florida boy, born and raised, Evan is as passionate about the community as he is entertaining them. While attending the University of Central Florida as an Interpersonal Communications and Film major, Evan interned at ABC network affiliate WPLG, gaining invaluable experience connecting with the community. He currently is the Sports and Entertainment reporter for Eye on South Florida and over sees the marketing at The Berman Law Group. Evan spends his free time entertaining his family at home. Now residing in Coral Springs, Florida, Evan is happily married and the father of two boys
Has it been a smooth road?
Working in the entertainment industry, facing rejections is as common as sawdust around a sawmill. You have to have extremely thick skin and be able to have a short term memory. Having a positive mindset is essential for a long term career. Every audition, meeting and casting call can provide a possible door to a future opportunity or a connection with someone working on specific project you might be right for. I always encourage young and emerging talent to knock on every door of opportunity, but you better be knocking harder than the competition. If talent wants to separate themselves, then be a complete professional. Come in extra prepared, be confident and always go for it. The worst feeling is what if…
So, as you know, we’re impressed with Eye on South Florida – tell our readers more, for example what you’re most proud of as a company and what sets you apart from others.
I will tell you right now, South Florida is the best destination on earth and I get to call it home! From fashion, film, food and entertainment there is no better place to be. I don’t want to knock local news stations, but they cover all the negative things happening in the community like burglaries, dog bites, crime…. Living in Florida my entire life I have seen everything amazing it has to offer. Working on the Eye on South Florida TV program provides a platform to showcase all the good happening. Covering Charity Events and Galas, Film Festivals, Fashion Shows, Positive Human Interest Stories, Grand openings, the list goes on. I am not sure of the exact statistic but since the launch of Eye on South Florida, tourism and relocation here has significantly went up. Some current South Florida residents want the show to go off air for population control!
Why I Wear Pink?
Breast cancer affects everyone – it doesn’t matter if you’re a man or a woman. That’s why I’m stepping up to fight breast cancer with all I have. Since I’m in a position to make a difference within my community, I believe I have an obligation to do so. By raising money and awareness through Real Men Wear Pink, I’m helping to save more lives from breast cancer.
Why I Support the American Cancer Society?
Every day, the American Cancer Society is saving more lives from breast cancer than ever before. They’re helping people take steps to reduce their risk of breast cancer or find it early, when it’s easier to treat. They provide free information and services when and where people need it. They fund groundbreaking breast cancer research and they’re working to ensure access to mammograms for women who need them.
Why was Evan Golden Nominated?
“I nominated Evan Golden for this campaign because he is a very prominent figure in the community and is always giving back to Broward County. Not to mention, his gregarious personality will be essential to his success in bringing awareness to the community. It will also enable him to raise money to support the American Cancer Society’s breast cancer initiatives and to help us save more lives than ever before.” Tali Amihud
