San DIego, Ca (PRWEB) June 19, 2013
Bill Howe Plumbing and the American Heart Association have teamed up for the third year to sponsor the “Howe” Healthy is Your Heart Drawing Contest. In the three month long contest, the San Diego air conditioning and plumbing company celebrated with several events including a kick-off Party in January at The New Children’s Museum in Downtown San Diego, presentation to age category winners at Garden Road Elementary Flag Day and ending with the grand prize winner and family attending the American Heart Association’s the San Diego Heart Ball on June 8, 2013.
The black-tie optional affair started on the beach outside of the Del Coronado Hotel with a cocktail hour and presentation of the auction items up for bid. Included in those auction items were a 3-strand pearl necklace donated by diamond Boutique, a seven night getaway for two to Cabo San Lucas, and a Corum Men’s Admiral’s Cup 48mm Luxury Timepiece to name a few. The 2013 San Diego Heart Ball was a great success with over 350 people in attendance and raising over $600,000 dollars that will go towards research for stroke and heart disease. As part of the sponsorship, the San Diego plumbers donate $25,000 annually.
Bill and Tina Howe were proud to sponsor the AHA Heart Beach Ball once again, this is the third year of the San Diego plumber’s sponsorship of the AHA that includes the annual three month long “Howe” Healthy is Your Heart Drawing Contest.
