Bill Howe Plumbing Supports Heart Month with Launch of “Howe” Healthy is Your Heart Drawing Contest

Local San Diego Heating and Air, Restoration and Flood and Plumbing Company Teams up with the American Heart Association for Third Year

February 5, 2013 San Diego, Calif. – Bill Howe Plumbing officially launched the third annual “Howe” Healthy is Your Heart Drawing Contest on Friday, February 1, 2013. The official launch date also marked the beginning of “Heart” month and the American Heart Association’s “Go Red for Women” campaign. The San Diego plumber has been an advocate of healthy lifestyles for many years and the team-up has proven to be a successful combination for both the American Heart Association (AHA) and Bill Howe Plumbing.

The “Howe” Healthy is Your Heart Drawing Contest is another way for Bill Howe Plumbing to give back to the local community and raise awareness for healthy living. The contest is open to children ages 5-12, and they are asked to draw their idea of how to keep their hearts healthy. In its first year, the contest received approximately 200 entries. In 2012, the AHA and the San Diego Plumber teamed up to launch the contest with a “Kick-Off Party” held at the New Children’s Museum in downtown San Diego. It was a huge success and they repeated the event on January 13, 2013. The 2013 “Howe” Healthy is Your Heart Kick-off party saw over 1200 people come through the event and 150 entries were completed.

The contest ends March 29, 2013, and both the AHA and the Bill Howe Family of Companies expect to have more entries in 2013 than the previous two years combined. Contest entry forms are available on the Bill Howe website, on their Facebook page and in elementary schools throughout the county, as well as at participating Kohl’s and Ross stores.  In their own company, they have sponsored weekly yoga for the employees, a “Biggest Loser” competition and offer fruit, yogurt, and whole grain-rich foods for breakfast at the monthly company meetings.

The child with the winning entry will win a $250 gift card for Toys ‘R Us and an invitation for the entire family to attend the San Diego Heart Ball at the Hotel Del Coronado in June, the only “no shoes required” Ball in San Diego. The event includes a cocktail hour and reception, dancing and a live auction raising funds for the AHA. The winning child and their family get to have a great time and mingle with the San Diego plumber and other philanthropic leaders in the community. Bill Howe Plumbing is also giving five additional Toys ‘R Us $100 gift cards; four runners up in each age category and a special “most Liked” prize for the Facebook fan vote that will be posted in April.

“We are so pleased to sponsor the American Heart Association for a third year. The drawing contest is a lot of fun and a great way to get children involved in the movement to raise awareness of healthy living,” says Tina Howe, Vice President of the Bill Howe Family of Companies. “We encourage all of our family and employees to get active in raising heart health awareness too, making them ambassadors for a healthier and happier community. After all, healthy hearts and healthy pipes really do make happy homes.”

What Joel C says about us

Very Satisfied. Michael is always on time, Michael has been doing all of the plumbing related to our remodel. He always does exactly what he commits to do within the estimated cost. He keeps me informed if any wrinkles pop up, and his plumbing skills are excellent as we have had no problems or issues arise after he has left. Very professional! Highly recommend.

What Rick M says about us

We had other companies come out for estimates on what was considered a major job with jackhammers and replacing cast iron pipes under the house… having been stung before, we wanted another estimate just to make sure we were making an informed decision. The prior estimates went up to $21,000!
Bill Howe sent us an amazing veteran plumber, Dashawn and his co- worker Anthony. Dashawn did a thorough check of the problem, explained what he thought was needed … he did a final check and we were able to see for ourselves what was the problem. He recommended a complete cleaning to de-scale the pipes, and not the major work we dreaded. Thanks to his solid analysis and patience in making sure we saw what he saw, the issue was resolved completely, and saved us thousands of unnecessary work. None of the other estimates included the cleaning; only the major repairs. Thanks to Dashawn’s knowledge, professionalism and honesty, we’re Bill Howe customers.

What Carolyn Housman says about us

This was our second excellent experience with Bill Howe. We had a blocked kitchen sink drain 8/5. I was able to get a same day appointment which is AMAZING. Person on phone was very courteous and set me up right away. Tony arrived at the house (called me 30 minutes out so I was able to be ready). He diagnosed the issue (blocked drain, not the garbage compactor) and was able to snake it and ran the water for 10 minutes to be sure the drains were clear. He cleaned up everything and you would not have known he was even there. Thank-you Tony and Bill Howe, you always know how.

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.
