Sims Memorial Library sparkled with candles and white lights for the victory party, which featured remarks by President Randy Moffett, former President Sally Clausen, Vice President for University Advancement Joe Miller, Campaign Chair Phil Livingston and others. Highlights also included the unveiling of a "wall of honor" of major donors, and a "thank you" video for donors.
