Fremont-based Evolución Innovations, otherwise known as evo, was founded in 2002 by Bryce Phillips. What began as an online retailer has now grown from a two employee operation into a business with more than 100 employees today.
It’s time for evo to celebrate and they’ll do just that on October 21 in the newly-renovated Fremont Collective:
evo’s 10-year anniversary event will be held in the recently renovated Fremont Collective, one of many restoration projects Phillips has undertaken through his real estate venture. Events will include evo’s second winter outerwear fashion show, USNAPS photobooth, silent auction, gift bags, red carpet, free-skate at Innerspace and a special musical guest. Benefits from this years event will be offered to The Service Board, a youth focused non-profit that engages kids through skateboard and snowboard mentorships, another continuing focus for Phillips and evo.
“Passion for building community is a driving force; both on a national level and locally in Seattle,” said Phillips. “We are excited about the opportunity to become community anchors in urban settings with diverse groups of people who share common interests. Music events, movie premiers, art exhibitions, benefits to help children in need, partnerships and simply providing a great place in a central location are all ways that we work to build and strengthen community.”
A lot more details to come, including the musical headliner for the event, which remains under wraps for now. However, considering evo has hosted artists such as Common Market, Snow Patrol and Talib Kweli, it could be a pretty notable name.
