Coldwater of Lee’s Summit will host its annual Winterfest fundraiser on February 27 from 6:30-9:30 p.m. at the Hilton Garden Inn. This year’s theme is “Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much.”

Joining Norman is Robert Rogers, inspirational speaker, and author of “Into the Deep: one man’s story of how tragedy took his family but could not take his faith” and “Rise Above.”
In 2003, Rogers lost his wife and four children in a flash flood in Kansas while returning to their home in Liberty. In 2004, Rogers left his technical career and started Mighty in the Land Ministry and the following year traveled with Metro Voice publisher Dwight Widaman to India on a tsunami relief mission.
