Winners of the Howe Healthy is Your Heart Drawing Contest Announced

 Bill Howe Plumbing, Inc. and the American Heart Association receive entries from local children with many creative ways to stay healthy and happy

May 17, 2011, San Diego, Calif. – Bill Howe Plumbing, Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc. and the American Heart Association have announced the winners of the “Howe” Healthy is Your Heart Drawing Contest. The nine-week contest garnered 94 drawings from children ages 5-12 throughout San Diego County who described how they keep their hearts healthy and drawings of their image of healthy hearts. Participants’ descriptions included a wide variety of ways to keep their hearts healthy, ranging from exercising and eating right to not fighting with siblings to receiving flowers from a boyfriend.

Grand prize winner, Summer Stewart, won a $300 gift card to Toys ‘R Us® and tickets for Summer and her parents to attend and be recognized at the American Heart Association’s Heart Beach Ball at the Hotel del Coronado on June 11, 2011. The 12-year-old’s description of how she keeps her heart healthy included “exercising, eating right, regular doctor check-ups and not smoking or drinking.”

Runners-up winners, Noah Rico, age 9, Mackenzie Lurkins, age 7, and Ella Constable, age 5, each received $100 gift cards to Toys ‘R Us®. All participants received the “Heart Health at Home” guide, a fun-filled book of ways to stay active and healthy at home, and a guide for parents filled with information to help make healthy food and lifestyle choices.

“We received so many talented and entertaining drawings that we found it really difficult to choose a winner. Actually, it was so hard that we added another runner-up winner so that we could have three runners-up instead of two,” said Bill Howe, owner of Bill Howe Plumbing, Heating & Air, Inc. “Encouraging healthy lifestyles and healthy eating is a priority at our company. Having five daughters myself, I understand the importance of teaching these good habits at an early age. We are happy that so many children and families participated in this contest.”

Bill Howe Plumbing, Heating & Air, Inc. is a proud sponsor of the American Heart Association’s 2011 San Diego Heart Beach Ball.

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.
