Helen Brett Enterprises Offers Trade Show Admission Discounts For School Supply Donations
NEW ORLEANS – Helen Brett Enterprises has partnered with the Second Harvest Food Bank to hold a “Back to School” supplies drive for financially-strapped students returning to school this month. Buyers to the exclusive New Orleans Gift and Jewelry Show who donate two school items such as markers, pens or spiral notebooks will receive five dollars off the first guest pass and ten dollars off the second guest pass with the donation of four items.
The popular New Orleans gift show, which is open only to documented business owners, kicks off Friday, Aug. 18 through Monday, Aug. 21, at the New Orleans Convention Center Hall I-2-J.
Helen Brett buyers are encouraged to bring school supplies for students in need to the jewelry show, which is a “cash and carry” event that first debuted in 1952. The quarterly trade shows attract more than 40,000 buyers from across Gulf Coast each year.
