CommerceWest Bank Helped Augie’s Quest Provide ALS Research

Irvine, California – October 13, 2018 – CommerceWest Bank helped Augie’s Quest Provide ALS Research. ALS, also called Lou Gehrig’s disease, is a neurological disease that causes dysfunction in the nerves and causes the brain to lose its ability to initiate and control muscle movement. Augie’s Quest is dedicated to finding treatments and cures for ALS.

“We are extremely proud to partner with CommerceWest Bank again this year as a sponsor of the 13th Annual Tradition of Hope Gala,” commented Augie Nieto, Chief Inspiration Officer for Augie’s Quest to Cure ALS. He continued, “Ivo Tjan and his team have always led by example, supporting ALS research with in-kind donations as well as sponsorship funds.  Their support has made drug advancements possible, providing hope to thousands of families living with ALS.”

“Augie and his team have been relentless in their pursuit to find a cure for ALS,” commented Ivo A. Tjan. He continued, “One day they will find a cure. It will be called Augie’s Cure, as he has driven success for cutting edge ALS research. We are proud to be a part of Augie’s story, as he makes history to find a cure.”
