Evans recognised by OABA
JC Evans, chairman of Gold Medal Products, is the first person to receive the new Pioneer Award from the Outdoor Amusement Business Association (OABA), the trade association for the American carnival industry.
“JC” gets the award in recognition of his outstanding career service and the growth of the concession industry. Gold Medal was founded in 1931 by JC’s father, David C Evans. It has become the industry leader in popcorn, candyfloss (“cotton candy”) supplies and more.
“Gold Medal leads the industry with many lines of equipment and supplies worldwide,” notes Bob Johnson, president of the OABA. “His involvement and support of industry trade associations is a tribute to his charity and dedication to giving back to the industries that help create an international brand of products.”
This award is due to be presented by the OABA at its annual meeting, held on the last day of its annual trade show in Gibtown, Florida (February 14).
