Event Details

We are so saddened to have lost a very dear friend, and the world lost a budding social entrepreneur.  While living in D.C., David Baldwin Barnes was recognized as one of The Hill's "Movers and Shaker" and he took his relationship building skills across the sea to Ghana where he was a partner with SOLVE, a sustainable agriculture business. Anyone that knew him knew he lived an "OUTSTANDING" life and inspired us all to the same. Please join us in celebrating his life and legacy. The fees associated with bringing David back home are exorbetent and this event will go a long way in helping his family. Our goal is to raise $25K. David never missed an event especially one for him--so come in your finest attire and raise a glass to the most stylish man we know, David Baldwin Barnes. From all of us we thank you for your donation. 

 

Statement from the Barnes Family: 

On the evening of February 18, 2013 in Accra, Ghana, David was in a car accident while riding his motorcycle home after business meetings and time with friends. He was immediately rushed to the hospital, but did not survive his injuries.

David lived the meaning of his name: Beloved. So many of us loved him and feel the ache of this loss. As we grieve together, we want to express our deepest gratitude for all of your outpouring of love and support for his family and friends.
