imageRob Van Winkle, better known as rapper/TV reality star “Vanilla Ice,” was named outstanding citizen of the year by the South Florida town where he lives.

Chamber officials honored Van Winkle for his “spirit of giving and dedication” to Wellington, a Palm Beach County town he has called home for more than a decade. Van Winkle has contributed to several local charities and films his DIY Network reality show “The Vanilla Ice Project” in Wellington.

The chamber presented the award to the rapper of “Ice Ice Baby” fame at a Feb. 26 event. Our very own Evan Golden had a chance to catch up with Mr Ice himself.
