Doc Hendley | Founder

Wine To Water

Wine To Water was birthed in 2004 when the founder, Doc Hendley, learned about the world’s water crisis. While bartending in Raleigh, NC he became captivated by the cause and felt the need to make a change; so he did. Due to the generosity of the community, Doc raised a few thousand dollars by doing what he knew best: he poured wine, beer, and spirits, played music, and had a good time with friends. Doc soon found himself in Darfur, in the midst of a war, working to provide clean water to those who were in desperate need in desperate times. Upon his return to the states, Doc went through the process and Wine To Water became an official 501(c)(3) organization in 2008.


Since 2008, Wine To Water has reached 600,000+ people across 25 countries giving them access to clean drinking water.

The Madison Collection is honored to partner with Wine To Water IN SOFLO (South Florida), a chapter of an international non-profit organization called Wine To Water, who is committed to serving in community to provide clean water to those in need.
