Helen Brett Enterprises Collects More Than 12,000 Lbs. of Donations for Flood-Affected LA Residents

Helen Brett Enterprises (HBE), producers of the New Orleans Gift and Jewelry Show, designated their August show as a collection point for donations to South Louisiana residents recently affected by catastrophic flooding.

HBE generously provided donors with a voucher for a free guest badge, as a “thank you” for donating. Attendees donated 12,140 pounds of non-perishable food items, personal toiletries, cleaning supplies, and bottled water.

Freeman Decorating Company volunteered their services to load the items into two trucks and transport them to Second Harvest Food Bank of New Orleans and Acadiana, where the items will be transferred to their distribution channels in the affected areas.

“All of us at Helen Brett Enterprisers are humbled by our attendee’s and exhibitor’s giving spirit.  We started off with the idea of doing a small part in helping an area that has supported us for so many years and we are completely inspired by the generosity of our loyal customers, the New Orleans Ernest N. Morial Convention Center staff, Freeman and the onsite team from Helen Brett Enterprises.  Our thoughts and prayers are with those in need right now,” said Brett Kolinek, CEM, President, Helen Brett Enterprises.

Special Delivery: Equipment Takes an Interesting Route from Bridge to Convention Center Roof

Drivers on the Crescent City Connection bridge, which connects the two banks of the Mississippi River in New Orleans, saw an interesting sight last Saturday morning: a crane parked in the emergency lane of the bridge, lowering a 1,500-lb piece of equipment 30 feet over the side of the bridge, to the roof of the New Orleans Ernest N. Morial Convention Center below.

The equipment is the condenser unit for the Convention Center’s new blast chiller, which will complement the other equipment that Centerplate, the Center’s exclusive food service provider, uses to prepare meals for banquets.

This interesting route to its final resting place was calculated to save time, save the cost of renting a special crane that could reach up to the roof, and also to avoid the closing of Convention Center Blvd. Longo Mechanical  completed the lift in one hour, and the work did not affect street traffic or events in the building.
