Wine to Water Fundraiser at Social Wednesday July 20

One of the best things about Charleston is our incredibly high quality of life.  Even in the worst of times, we still live at the beach, in a town of incredible history, architecture and most of all, incredible people.

These incredible people are philanthropically minded, and always broadening our horizons.  Angharad Chester-Jones, sales manager at Patrick Properties Hospitality Group, is one of those people.  She is spear heading the 2nd annual Wine To Water local fundraiser, held at Social Wine Bar on Wednesday, July 20 from 8 – 10 pm.

$20 will get you in, where you can enjoy “bubbles, bites, beer and more,” and bid on cool silent auction items like a 4 day pass for standup paddle board rentals–all the rage now–from Air Wind & Water Sports, beach yoga from Yoga Lilly and lots more fun summertime activities.

Wine To Water’s mission is to bring clean water to the nearly who do not have access to it.  ONE BILLION.  That’s sick.  Wine To Water is working on projects with local organizations in Sudan, Uganda, India, Cambodia, Peru, Ethiopia, Sri Lanka, South Africa and Haiti.

Doc Hendley founded Wine To Water in Raleigh, NC in 2004, and with their first event in February of that year, Hendley was living in Darfur by August, installing water systems to aid genocide victims.  That first experience has grown into a 501c3 non-profit organization, dedicated to fighting death and disease due to lack of clean water access and advanced sanitation.

Join in for Wine To Water Fundraiser on Wednesday, July 20 at Social, 188 East Bay Street, from 8 – 10 pm
