The Chris Klug Foundation partners with Taylor & Tessier Aspen to Celebrate National Donor Day

Aspen, CO, February 4, 2015 – The Chris Klug Foundation has partnered with jewelry designers Taylor & Tessier who will host a cocktail party at the Iris Gallery of Fine Art. The event will take place on Tuesday, February 10th at the gallery located at 520 E. Hyman. Drinks will be served from 5:00-7:00 pm with Chris Klug and designers Taylor & Adam Tessier in attendance. Taylor & Tessier Aspen will generously to donate 20% of the evening’s proceeds to the Chris Klug Foundation. Temerity Chocolates will be selling their locally made gourmet chocolates, so there is something for everyone. The event is also sponsored Aspen Magazine and the Iris Gallery of Fine Art.

As Valentine’s Day approaches, the Chris Klug Foundation reminds its friends and supporters that February 14th is about more the chocolates and jewelry, it’s also National Donor Day. Donor Day was started in 1997 and continues with grassroots awareness activities across our country today.  Becoming a registered organ & tissue donor is a way to have a lasting legacy, and it’s as simple as going to to register.  For more information on this event or on the Chris Klug Foundation please contact Beth Slater at (970) 618-7120.

The Chris Klug Foundation and its Donor Dudes program host dozens of events across the country throughout the year.  Upcoming events include the Shape Conference in Seattle March 17-20, National Donate Life Month in April, the Vans Warped Tour this summer, and Leadville Trail MTB 100 on August 15, and the New York City Marathon on November 1.  Lastly, at the Winter X Games in Aspen, CO, January 22-25, volunteers and staff spoke directly to over 2,800 people about the importance of organ & tissue donation.  

Launched in 2010, Taylor and Tessier designs were first sold at the prestigious Aspen Saturday Market, creating a name for itself through its unique style and quality craftsmanship found in the handmade pieces. Now found in over 80 high-end retail locations, Taylor and Tessier has acquired national brand awareness but is still fun to search out in boutiques across the US.

The Chris Klug Foundation is a 501(c)3 dedicated to promoting lifesaving organ & tissue donation and improving the quality of life for those touched by donation.
