Top fashion designer says thank you to donor families

Organ Donor Car Show

Trelise Cooper, one of New Zealand’s most successful fashion designers, is a major sponsor of an upcoming car show to raise awareness for organ donation. It’s a cause close to Trelise’s heart as her close friend Danny Saunders received a life-saving lung transplant in 2010.

Since his transplant car-enthusiast Danny has wanted to put on a classic car show, complete with a 1950s pin up beauty contest (judged by Trelise herself), to say thank you for his second chance at life and to raise awareness about organ donation.
