Jerry Cowan's Legacy

About This Campaign

All of us who knew Jerry Cowan, also knew that he loved causes. And he had a warm place in his heart for Wine To Water. He talked about this mission and he supported it with his time, effort and love.
So, with love in our hearts, we hope to raise enough to fund a well in his honor.
Wine To Water

Campaign 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.

    Jerry was a great person and his friendship was much appreciated. Jerry always looked for the good in everyone. He was also the first to lend a helping hand. I appreciated his guidance and advice as a young agency owner. Jerry set a great example for us to follow and will be missed.
