fathom - Impact in the Dominican Republic
An event in support of Wine To Water.
About This Event
One of the most meaningful and heart warming impact activities Fathom offers is the Wine-to-Water water filter project. In the Dominican Republic alone, more than three million people have no access to piped water which has a profound effect on all aspects of a families life. Because of the partnership between Fathom and W-to-W, travelers have the opportunity to create and deliver a water filter to families in need.
Join us as we taste delicious wines, share stories of our time in the DR, and simultaneously improve the lives of people all over the world.

Event to Support Wine To Water
We're a small team based in Boone, NC, who believes ordinary people, in community, can make an extraordinary difference in the world. This movement began in 2004 when our founder, Doc Hendley, while bartending in Raleigh, NC, learned about the world’s water crisis. Once captured by the cause, Doc felt the need to do something about it. So, he did. He did what he knew best…pour some wine, beer, and spirits, play some music, and have a great time with friends. When it was all said and done, a few thousand dollars was raised due to the generosity of the community. With some money in hand, 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. Thus, Wine To Water was born.
