10th & Piedmont welcomes Lynn Barfield as Community Ambassador, Event Coordinator

ATLANTA -- With  over 18 years of volunteering and being active in Atlanta’s non-profit sector, Lynn Barfield will become the new community ambassador and event coordinator at 10th & Piedmont and Gilbert’s Café & Bar. The partnership comes after 11 years of friendship with owners and brothers Sean and Gilbert Yeremyan. In this role, Barfield organizes fundraisers and charity events, coordinates large group reservations, provides guest feedback to management to improve overall operations and promotes planned events and community-focused philosophy of both restaurants. She also acts as the part-time maître d' at 10th & Piedmont during the week.

“Outwrite was such a cornerstone in the Midtown community and I’m excited to have the opportunity to help recreate a gathering place for the neighborhood,” Barfield said. “My goal is to give people a better dining experience with a cocktail party atmosphere that’s upscale, yet still accessible.”

Barfield attended the University of Georgia and is currently an associate at the Decatur accounting firm McKelvey and Russell. Barfield volunteers with CHRIS Kids and AIDS Walk Atlanta, and has worked with YouthPride, Atlanta Union Mission, Hands on Atlanta and other charitable organizations. Barfield also served as the executive director of Enlight Atlanta, an organization dedicated to working with educators, parents and students to combat bullying in schools. In 2011, she was chosen as a grand marshal for the Atlanta Pride festival and was named one of Fenuxe magazine’s top 50 most influential and prominent members of Atlanta’s LGBT community in 2012. Outside of work and her volunteer efforts, the Midtown resident enjoys reading and listening to music.
