That changed all the times to 9:33 pm no matter what was in the data.

Ok sorry,
forgot to mention that $row_event['evn_entry_date'] should be a unix timestamp.

This would work:

echo date("d-m-Y H:i:s", strtotime('+2 hours', strtotime($row_event['evn_entry_date'])));

Is this example not working for you?

echo date("d-m-Y H:i:s", strtotime('+2 hours', strtotime($row_event['evn_entry_date'])));

Now i got it.  I was only trying to echo the hour and min.  When I tried to change your code i made a slight error the first time. Here is what I ended up with to echo just the hour and min and the 2 hours. In case someone needs the reference.
<?php echo date("g:ia", strtotime('+2 hours', strtotime($row_classified['cls_entry_date']))); ?>
