Events with a Cause?
Every event our team plans brings with it a deep rooted mission to incorporate a specific cause and bring awareness to that cause. We do not like duplicating something that is already being done so our events aren’t your traditional awareness events. We add different elements to each event that provide something for just about everyone. But the best way to understand this is to experience one of our events in person. Check out our upcoming events and get involved today!
We pride ourselves on keeping our events current and moving forward. Just because an event is successful doesn’t mean it should stop with that. Our events are made with you in mind and we educate ourselves to make sure we are up to date with the latest developments and treatments for the specific causes our events are bringing awareness to.
While we are an entertainment company, we do not use this as an excuse not to be on the up and up with the causes we work with. We partner with world leading companies on the front line of research as well as medical professionals on our team that help us with keeping our mission on target.

In 2005, Brad Cole started an organization focused on planning events for teens and the college-age. In 2012 he met someone who changed our focus completely and Golden Events Entertainment, LLC was born. From medical professionals to those who have planned large-scale events to MMA events, a diverse team of event planners with over 10 years experience works to fulfill the mission of Golden Events Entertainment, LLC. Our mission: Set the Stage for Events with A Cause. This mission came when Brad was working at a local hospital and became friends with someone who was just diagnosed with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) or better known as, Lou Gehrig’s Disease. This was before the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge was ever thought of and the amount of people Brad met that were unaware of this horrible illness was shocking. Part of our team attended the event and quickly noticed that the event was missing something. The whole mission of the event was to bring awareness but there were not many attending that were not already aware. After the event Brad met with his friend to speak about planning an event, that was for all ages but also targeting hard on the 17-35 year olds, something Brad was already good at doing, while also bringing in elements to attract people that would not usually attend an awareness event. They also discussed how important it was to have an event that would bring awareness to more than ALS but as many incurable illnesses as possible. Today, the Golden Events Entertainment team is working hard to keep the promise Brad made to his friend, who passed away in 2013, by planning Bloom Festival. Bloom Festival is an event to bring awareness to incurable illnesses. You can read more about Bloom Festival and our other events by clicking on the Events tab.

At Golden Events Entertainment, LLC we strive to make a difference with our events. Every event we plan has a purpose in bringing awareness to a specific cause; it’s what our company was founded on when I sat down with a friend of mine, who had ALS, and started talking about ideas of what our new company could do for those with incurable illnesses. With the combined experience our team brings to the table, our events are sure to make a difference, not only to the thousands that attend, but also to the whole world.Brad Cole
