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 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.
