Bill Howe Family of Companies Announces Drawing Contest “Facebook Favorite” Winner

Public vote chooses first winner in annual drawing contest hosted by local San Diego plumber and the American Heart Association

May 5, 2014 San Diego, Calif. – The Bill Howe Family of Companies started as a small one man plumbing company in San Diego offering low cost service to the local community. Since opening his doors, Bill Howe has steadily grown the company into a successful, large low cost service & repair operation, with two additional divisions for heating & air conditioning and restoration & flood remediation. Part of the success has been a commitment to giving back to the San Diego community through outreach, sponsorship opportunities and their most prominent team up with the American Heart Association.

The American Heart Association and local plumbing company in San Diego have been teaming up for the past 5 years. The sponsorship includes an annual donation to the AHA of $25,000, support at the San Diego Heart Ball Gala in June and a unique drawing contest aimed to promote healthy active lifestyles and raise awareness of heart disease and stroke in the local community.

The San Diego plumber created the “Howe” Healthy is Your Heart Drawing Contest to encourage children ages 5-12 to learn about and engage in heart healthy lifestyles.  The contest opens each year on February 1, at the start of National Heart Month. The Bill Howe Family of Companies hosts a kick off launch party in January and several community events to help promote the contest. The age category winners and “Facebook Favorite” winner of the contest each receive a $100 gift card to Toys R Us, and the Grand Prize Winner receives a $250 and an invitation to the Heart ball with his or her family held at the Hotel Del Coronado.

The drawing with the most likes/comments was named the winner. The 2014 “Facebook Favorite is Zoe, age 7 from Pacific Beach. The winning drawing exhibits all the elements of a healthy and active lifestyle, nutrition, sleep, exercise and love. When asked what Zoe would do with the gift card, “I am going to buy a present for my friend’s birthday,” she replied sweetly.

“The drawing contest is one of our favorite times of the year,” said Tina Howe, Vice President of the Bill Howe Family of Companies. “Not only do we get to help promote health and fitness, but we get to share our passion with the community while raising awareness for such a great and important organization.”

What David says about us

Service for new garbage disposal. My ancient garbage disposal quit working, went online to get Bill Howe’s number, immediately received and accepted chat to describe my needs. Prompt call back to schedule an appointment, service tech Allen was out same morning, which was important to fit my work schedule. Job estimate was clear, work done fully to my expectations, area left clean, and price was very fair.
I was not surprised — I have used Bill Howe plumbers for several other tasks in the past. I have always found their staff to be helpful, attentive, and the plumbers very courteous and capable.

I have been using Bill Howe since the late 1980’s, their service has always been excellent, plumbing, heating and restoration. I am most impressed by the integrity of their employees, not only do they know their work/skill, they do not waste time, they are so efficient, they are so helpful and they are a true “service”!

What Mira says about us

Bill Howe never fails us! We had a drain overflow, and Scott came (on a Saturday) to look at it and offer solution. He was punctual, professional, and extremely helpful. I should also praise the main office for always being helpful and always finding solutions. Very grateful to have you in San Diego!

What Ed Gohlich says about us

Cory was our technician on this job. We had a time sensitive repair issue and Bill Howe understood and assisted with getting the job done quickly.
Cory was on time to start the job and finished it quickly. Upon his leaving our home he’s was courteous, very knowledgeable, explaining what the problem was and how he fixed it. Very good communication and this is the way it’s has always been when we use Bill Howe plumbing.
Great company to work with.
Thanks Cory.

What Bridgett says about us

I am extremely happy with the service we received from Bill Howe Plumbing. We were given an incorrect diagnosis of our main sewer line from another vendor, but Bill Howe’s servicemen came out for a second opinion, correctly diagnosed our problem and resolved our back up issues. We will continue to use Bill Howe for all our future plumbing needs!

Thank you Bill Howe Plumbing.
