Bill Howe Plumbing, Inc. Sponsors Spring Harp Fest for the Fourth Year
Community Outreach is Second Nature to Local San Diego Heating and Air, Restoration and Flood, and Plumbing Company
March 22, 2013 San Diego, Calif. – Bill Howe Plumbing has been a proud sponsor of a multitude of different organizations in San Diego, from a three-year campaign with the American Heart Association to multiple partnering opportunities with the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater San Diego. Heating and air, and plumbing may be their expertise in business, but community outreach and philanthropy is something at which Bill Howe Plumbing excels.
This year’s Spring Harp Fest is the fourteenth annual celebration of getting harmonicas in the hands of students and bringing music back to education. The event was founded in 1999, draws some of Southern California’s most prominent blues harmonica players, and is 100 percent free. It is funded in its entirety by charitable contributions from the local community, donations from attendees, raffles at the event and local business support. This year, Hooters and HoDads will be donating food for purchase and families are encouraged to come all together to enjoy a quality and fun, music-filled time.
Bill Howe became involved with Spring Harp Fest four years ago because their senior field supervisor, Ton Safreed,is an accomplished harmonica student involved with the organization. Tom and the Bill Howe Band, a group of musically inclined technicians, have even performed at many of the events the Bill Howe Family of Companies host each year for the whole company. Tom has been with Bill Howe Plumbing for almost 20 years and is a skilled plumber. San Diego residents have many choices in where to go for fun, but this event offers so much more in terms of the good they are doing in the community.
In addition to sponsoring Spring Harp Fest, the San Diego heating and air company has also promoted many events for individual plumbers and their families surrounding music and the arts. In June 2012, Bill Howe Plumbing generously hosted a “Reggae to the Rescue” event at the Belly Up Tavern in Solana Beach to raise money for one of their own, Doug Powell’s son, Andy. The benefit helped to raise enough money for Andy’s life saving kidney transplant. Doug has been part of the Bill Howe family for over 19 years and is also a skilled journeyman plumber. San Diego is home to a thriving music scene and Bill and Tina know how important it is to support not only music in education, but their own employees as well.
“We are a company built on giving back,” said Tina Howe, Vice President of Bill Howe Family of Companies.” “It is especially rewarding when we can take care of our own employees; they are our biggest asset and giving back always starts at home.”
