Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage President Kris Vogt Announced as Man of the Year Candidate for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s Sacramento Chapter

Sacramento, CA, March 03, 2012 --( Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage announced today that Kris Vogt, president of the company’s Sacramento/Tahoe region and a native of Elk Grove, has been nominated as a Man of the Year candidate for the Sacramento Chapter of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS).

Now through May 12, Vogt and his campaign team will work to raise as much money as possible for LLS with a goal of $60,000. Each dollar raised is considered a vote for Vogt’s campaign. The Man & Woman of the Year competition is held each year in LLS chapters around the country in honor of The Boy & Girl of the Year – local children who are blood cancer survivors. All monies raised stay in the local LLS chapter.

As part of his campaign, Vogt and his support team will hold several fundraising events throughout the Sacramento area, which will be open to the public. From May 4 to 5, Vogt, an accomplished marathon runner, will run for 24 hours on a course that will start at Sutter Medical Center and wind through Folsom and Sacramento.

“Kris is incredibly committed to LLS and the Man of the Year competition,” said Clay Sigg, manager of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage’s Sacramento Fair Oaks office and Vogt’s campaign manager. “To volunteer to run for 24 hours is a tremendous statement to his dedication, generosity and willingness to go above and beyond when asked. It’s not about winning for him – it’s about doing what is needed to help.”

“When approached to be an LLS Man of the Year candidate, I immediately wanted to get involved,” said Vogt. “So many members of our community have been affected by leukemia, lymphoma and other blood cancers. Our hope is to raise as much money as possible to support those who have been diagnosed, as well as their families. Our ultimate goal is to one day find a cure and supporting LLS may help do just that.”

The announcement of the winners will be made at the Grand Finale Celebration Gala at The Sheraton Grand Sacramento Hotel on May 12. The event is open to the public and tickets may be purchased by visiting

Vogt, a lifelong resident of Elk Grove, attended Joseph Kerr Middle School and Elk Grove High School. He started his real estate career more than 20 years ago at the Elk Grove office of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage, and was promoted to managing broker after just six years in business.

Throughout his professional career, he has been actively involved in several charitable organizations in the Sacramento and Elk Grove communities, including Habitat for Humanity, Elk Grove Community Fund, Toys for Tots, Operation: One Warm Coat, Elk Grove Food and Clothes Closet, and more.
