Ivo Tjan, CEO of CommerceWest Bank (OTCBB:CWBK), proudly co-chaired the 13 th Annual Tim Salmon Golf Classic with fellow co-chairs Wing Lam of Wahoos and William Wang, CEO of Vizio. Tim Salmon has continued his legacy after retiring from the Angels in 2006, by being an “Angel” to local charities in the Community. The Tim Salmon Golf Classic benefits the Abused and At-Risk Children of Concept 7 and Laurel House. He previously chose to work with these charities throughout his baseball career and they remain the focus of his philanthropic efforts today. Concept 7 is a foster family and adoption agency that seeks to ease the suffering of abused and neglected children. Laurel House is a residential home for teenage runaways and youth in crisis. Tim Salmon commented, “I appreciate the support and guidance that Ivo has provided throughout the years. He is always willing to assist us in raising awareness for our great cause and this year he has been an instrumental co-chair. I cannot thank him enough for his contributions to our organization and for everything else that he does for children’s charities in the local community.”
