(New Orleans, LA) - Helen Brett Enterprises today announced that it has partnered with the Humane Society of Louisiana to bring joy to the lives of local pets in need. Visitors to this weekend's Helen Brett International Jewelry and Merchandise Show at the New Orleans Convention Center will receive discounted admission when they donate a pet treat or toy to the local Humane Society.

The popular jewelry and merchandise marketplace, which is open only to documented business owners, kicks off this Friday, May 19 through Monday, May 22 at the Ernest N.
