San Diego Plumbers Participate in Local “Ride for Kids” Fundraising Event

Employees from the Bill Howe Family of Companies ride for a cause

September 29, 2014 San Diego, Calif. –Bill and Tina Howe, owners of well-established San Diego plumbing, HVAC and restoration company, know the importance of giving back to the community and have shared their own “pay-it-forward” spirit with their employees. From volunteering at the local food bank and local fundraising events to participation in organizations that are important individually, the team of San Diego plumbers at Bill Howe is eager to get involved in community outreach.

San Diego Ride for Kids is part of a national series of motorcycle rides benefitting the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation. Ride for Kids began in 1984, a time when there was little hope for those diagnosed with pediatric brain tumors. There was little research, and treatments did not guarantee children would survive to adulthood. Motorcyclists and Ride for Kids have helped to change that realty for PBTF offering family friendly, fun-filled ride events taking place in 37 locations across the country. As of September 2014, Ride for Kids 2014 has raised over $2.5 million for the foundation.

This is the first year that the Bill Howe Family of Companies has sponsored the event.  Spearheaded by Chief Technical Officer, Mark Card, a group of five San Diego plumbers joined on Saturday with their motorcycles. Additionally, Mark brought his sidecar and was able to bring one of the kids in attendance along for the ride. “It was exciting to be a part of the San Diego Ride for Kids this year,” said Mark. More than 500 riders attended the San Diego event and raised a total of $13,352.

“We were very proud of all of our team members and the many foundations they want to support,” said Tina Howe, Vice President of the Bill Howe Family of Companies.  “We have built into our own mission the importance of community outreach and charitable giving, and to see our employees pick up the banner of “giving back” means we are succeeding in reaching our goals.”

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.
