San Diego Plumber Takes First Place at Spring Harp Fest 2014

Bill Howe Plumbing, Inc. and Tom Safreed, Field Supervisor, sponsor local music festival and take first place in “unknown players jam” 

April 24, 2014 San Diego, Calif. – Well-known San Diego plumbing company, Bill Howe Plumbing, Inc. has been a long time supporter of community events. A proud sponsor of the American Heart Association for five years, the San Diego Burn Institute since 2012, and for the past five years, a prominent sponsor of the Spring Harp Fest. The local music festival celebrated its 15th year this month and Bill Howe Plumbing Field Supervisor, Tom Safreed, is proud to have been part of the organizations fundraising endeavors since 1999.

The Spring Harp Fest is an annual music event celebrating music education and American art form, “blues harmonica.” It is a free festival, family friendly, and 100 percent funded through local community support, donations and volunteers. Suggested donations of event attendees are $10, and all proceeds go towards music education in local schools. Spring Harp Fest is affiliated with Blues Lovers United of San Diego (BLUSD), a nonprofit organization, where contributions from Harp Fest are earmarked for harmonica inclusion in schools. In 2012, Spring Harp Fest was able to donate $1500.00 and 300 harmonicas to BLUSD.

What Andy B. via Lennox Pro says about us

We have been using Bill Howe Plumbing’s service for more than 25 years and have been pleasantly surprised at how consistently they perform an excellent service call. We use them for our home and our rental properties, and their dispatchers and technicians have always been the best at problem solving; our tenants have told us how great the service is as well. When we needed air conditioning service, naturally we called Bill Howe first. There’s no reason to call anyone else. I know the job will be done right the first time, with fair pricing and professional service.
