It seems to me as if you have taken all of the proper steps to ensure the best possible results. Cleaning the corrosion with alcohol and allowing the board to dry out is your best option.
Keep us posted on your progress!

rice is great when dealing with a freshly wet problem, but the alcohol will draw out moisture and clean the corrosion, and then dry out on its own. The fan will help. It should technically be dry within less than an hour, but waiting overnight is safer. Other than that, you should be set. Let us know how it goes.

Should I be concerned that the machine rebooted itself before we discovered the moisture?
Thanks for the encouraging words, guys.
