“It’s our second year of teaming up with the American Heart Association to help them increase awareness of child obesity and encourage healthy habits at home. We really wanted to launch this year’s contest with a bang and the Kickoff Party at The New Children’s Museum is going to be the perfect way to help us spread the word,” said Tina Howe, Vice President of the Bill Howe Family of Companies. “After all, healthy hearts and healthy pipes make happy homes!”
