CommerceWest Bank (OTCBB:CWBK) supported Miocean for their Annual Blue 42 Event. Pat Fuscoe, Chairman for Miocean, commented, “I am excited to have CommerceWest Bank support us again this year. Miocean aims to eliminate the urban pollution that is strangling our 42 mile long Orange County coast.” He continued, “One in three beach goers are exposed to bacteria, toxins and polluted water with one in ten becoming ill. Miocean partners with local Cities in a 'B-to-B' relationship to build shoreline projects that catch & clean storm water runoff. They also sponsor educational prevention curricula at several local schools & institutions. Every dollar brought in by Miocean goes directly to their projects which is feasible due to the fact that their Board members pay for administrative expenses. The Board members are local CEO's and business leaders who take ownership and responsibility for this important work that protects our ocean…….your ocean…….Miocean.”
