The CANDLES Museum hosted its annual fundraiser Sunday night - but that wasn't the only celebration. Hundreds came out for Eva Kor's 80th birthday party, complete with a four-tiered cake. The Museum's next project is developing a peace garden for people to come and learn about forgiveness.
The CANDLES Museum hosted its annual fundraiser Sunday night - but that wasn't the only celebration.

Hundreds came out for Eva Kor's 80th birthday party, complete with a four-tiered cake!

People shared some of their favorite stories about Eva, and some of her books were on hand to purchase, along with a silent auction to raise money.

Eva says she is overwhelmed by the support, and has even taken her cause to Twitter now.

"I'm excited to be 80 years old, I highly recommend it. And I feel because I supported CANDLES that gave me something meaningful in life to do," she said.   "I'm delighted I did not realize that turning 80 is that much fun, you do whatever you want to and you don't really worry, that's wonderful."

The Museum's next project is developing a peace garden for people to come and learn about forgiveness.
