Blues Music Showcase Success

It was a busy weekend for local san Diego plumbing company Bill Howe. On Saturday, the team started early with the American Heart Association Heart Walk and then continued the giving with Boogie Magazine at a Blues Music Showcase raising money for the Warrior Foundation-Freedom Station.

Tom Safreed, San Diego plumbing field supervisor, and blues harmonica player wanted to do something for the warrior foundation, an organization centered on helping transitioning warriors. He created the Blues Music Showcase and spent several months seeking out sponsors to help raise money. Proud Mary’s Southern Bar & Grill donated their venue for free allowing Tom and Boogie Magazine the full space to host this event.

Bill Howe Plumbing has a long history of giving back to the San Diego community and helped to promote and sponsor the event. Tom also received an abundance of gifts to raffle off at the event including Carnitas Snack Shack, the Patio Group, Mission Valley Pipe & Supply, Busalacchi’s, City Chevrolet, Music Rental & Pawn Shop, San Diego Harley-Davidson, Golf Mart, and Ferguson Plumbing Supply in San Diego.

All proceeds went directly to the Warrior Foundation-Freedom Station, which is a 100 percent volunteer organization. The Warrior Foundation-Freedom Station ensures that all money raised goes back to the warriors sending them home for the holidays, wherever their family is, providing housing, support, and a safe place where they can heal.

The lineup for the event included Lady Star, and with suggested donations at the door and raffle tickets, the event raised $2,875 for the Warrior Foundation-Freedom Station. The San Diego plumbing company routinely offers pro-bono plumbing and HVAC work for the housing unit, Freedom Station, and is proud to be a part of such a great and giving community.

It is also because of the efforts of Tom Safreed that the event was so successful. It was great fun, and we can’t wait for our next event.

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.
