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 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.
