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 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.

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.
