That's good, but better would be to follow the guidelines in
which recommends the synopsis should work as a noun phrase when put
into a sentence.

Also, the program Evolution is normally capitalised like that within a
sentence, AFAICT.

Last, it seems a bit forced to use the possessive “Evolution's
contacts”. Better would be to say “Evolution contacts”, specifying
a type of contact (ones within Evolution).

My suggestion:

    Description: birthday reminder for Evolution contacts

 \        “Pinky, are you pondering what I'm pondering?” “Wuh, I think |
  `\   so, Brain, but wouldn't anything lose its flavor on the bedpost |
_o__)                               overnight?” —_Pinky and The Brain_ |
