Evon Burton


Director of Communications

(215) 985-4448 (x252)


Evon has been at FIGHT SINCE 2014. Evon enjoys the fact that FIGHT unlike other non-profit organization that claims to be a “one-stop shop,” “comprehensive” or “client-centered; Philadelphia FIGHT is the only organization where Evon has worked that lived up to that expectation. All of FIGHT’s service offerings are driven by the needs of our patients, many of whom face wide range of traumas. Over the last ten years, Evon has worked in local nonprofit space and has been a communication professional for eight of those years. Evon is one of the few remaining lifelong Philadelphians, who wants to share knowledge of the city in tandem with his marketing expertise to let more Philadelphians know about the greatness of Philadelphia FIGHT. “I have a performing arts background. My first love was dance, which was cultivated at my aunt’s dance school in Mount Airy.”
