The Tulsa Area United Way set a new record, and the BOK Tower showed off the victory in lights Thursday night.

The United Way raised more than $26,159,826, almost a million more than its goal of $25,200,000.

It's also the largest campaign ever in its 89-year history.

"This is truly a testament to the deep and far-reaching generosity of our community," said Mark R. Graham, president and CEO of the Tulsa Area United Way. "This is an astounding result that places us among the elite United Way organizations in the U.S."

The money will be distributed between dozens of local charities.
