SACRAMENTO — Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage Community Foundation, the philanthropic arm of Northern California’s largest real estate services company, recently announced the launch of its 15th annual “Homes and Hope” Habitat for Humanity fundraising campaign.

The major event of this year’s fundraising effort will once again be a raffle, which runs through Oct. 18, in all 57 Northern California Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage offices. Organizers have set a goal of raising $356,000 and all donations collected will go to local Habitat for Humanity chapters for homes to be built in 2014. Money will also be raised by fundraisers held by individual Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage offices throughout Northern California.

“As real estate professionals, we’re all about helping others realize the American dream of homeownership,” said Kris Vogt, president of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage. “But unfortunately, for many low-income families in our community this has become an impossible dream without the help of organizations like Habitat for Humanity. As we begin our 15th annual campaign, I’m very proud that Coldwell Banker agents, managers and staff continue to make a real difference in the lives of those less fortunate and truly give back to the communities we serve.”

In addition to the fundraiser, Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage agents, staff and volunteers will participate in Habitat for Humanity construction projects over the next several weeks throughout Northern California, including a project at 307 Chennault Court in Sacramento.

Over the past 14 years, the Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage Community Foundation has raised more than $2.3 million for Habitat for Humanity chapters in Northern California. The Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage team has also volunteered more 48,000 hours and participated in the construction of 179 Habitat for Humanity homes.

Raffle tickets are $2 each and the public is invited to participate. Prizes include $5,000 donated by Princeton Capital, gift certificates, hotel stays and much more.
