As part of its ongoing effort to impact the communities it serves, Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage in the Sacramento–Tahoe area is sponsoring the St. HOPE Fundraising Dinner 2015 on Thursday, October 15.

St. HOPE, located in the Oak Park neighborhood of Sacramento, is an organization inspired by Kevin Johnson, mayor of Sacramento. The organization consists of economic development, civic leadership, the arts and a public charter school system that focus on low-income and minority students.

“The positive transformation taking place in Oak Park is a testament to the vitality of organizations like St. HOPE,” said Kris Vogt, ‎president of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage in the Sacramento/Tahoe Region. “Coldwell Banker is attracted to communities committed to revitalization, and we want to help however we can. Sponsoring the St. HOPE Dinner is one of many ways we are truly making a difference in our local communities.”

Recently, Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage has taken a more targeted approach to its giving efforts. In addition to sponsoring local events like the St. HOPE Dinner, the Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage Sacramento/Tahoe Community Foundation has established a new local board of directors empowered with local philanthropic decision-making.

“Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage is excited to play a significant role in the economic prosperity of the region,” said Vogt. “We are working hard to make sure our corporate philanthropy is reaching every corner of the Sacramento-Tahoe region, especially communities that are struggling to change. We are proud to participate in efforts that make our communities thrive.”

The Annual Dinner is St. HOPE’s only fundraising event of the year and accounts for a significant portion of its operating budget. The 2015 St. HOPE Dinner will take place on Thursday, October 15 at the Sacramento Convention Center.
