Registration not required

Friday, March 18, 2016

7:00 p.m. - 8:00 p.m.

Newport Branch

Description

Doc Hendley, a 2009 "Top 10 CNN Hero," is living proof that anyone can change the world.  Dismayed by lack of clean water access worldwide, Hendley uses his bartending skills to raise funds to bring drinking water to far-flung locations, including Darfur refugee camps.  Hendley is the founder of the foundation Wine to Water and the author of a memoir by the same name.

Doc Hendley is the epitome of the individual who has made a difference.  Tens of thousands of people around the world have clean drinking water they did not have before an idea popped into the head of the "tattooed keg-tapper" musician.  He realized that just by using his ability to bartend and create relationships with people, he might be able to help the problem.  At the bars where he worked, he started raising money to fight this water epidemic the best way he knew how - by pouring wine and playing music.

Today Doc Hedley's Wine to Water foundation aims to help the 1.1 billion people worldwide who lack access to clean water.  Hendley got inspired behind the bar, and today his nonprofit group, Wine to Water, has dug, repaired, and sanitized drinking wells to help provide clean water to more than 150,000 people in 17 countries.  It's an idea that started with wine tastings and a humble donation jar.

Join us to learn more about Hendley's inspiring tale and the work he has accomplished.

An ASL interpreter will be present to sign at this event.

A book sale and signing will follow the presentation.
