Rochester WinterFest raises $360,000 for nonprofits


ROCHESTER, Minn. (KTTC) -- Rochester WinterFest 2014 raised $360,000 for a host of area nonprofit organizations.

The WinterFest Committee announced the total Thursday morning at Rochester City Hall.

Five-hundred volunteers along with 31,000 attendees made the 11-day festival a success.

The committee also announced the winner of the 2015 WinterFest logo contest.

"At first I didn't know what to do, but I built a snowman in our yard so I looked outside and started to do snowmen," said Jace Kraft, winner of the logo contest.

As a grand prize, Kraft won a key to the city of Rochester, as well as a free movie for his class to attend at a local theater.

Next year's WinterFest chair will be Capt. Kevin Torgerson of the Olmsted County Sheriff's Office.
