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.
