WILD ABOUT HARRY 2024 – Truman Library

April 18 @ 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM CDT

WILD ABOUT HARRY IS CELEBRATING 25 YEARS!

Thursday, April 18, 2024

Muehlebach Tower ★ Kansas City Marriott Downtown
1213 Wyandotte, Kansas City, Missouri

HONORARY CHAIRS ★ David Von Drehle & the late Karen Ball (1961-2023)
EVENT CHAIRS ★ Merilyn & Dr. Loren Berenbom

Now a Kansas City tradition, Wild About Harry is known for bringing our nation’s thought and opinion leaders to the site that once served as President Truman’s political headquarters. Featured guests have included presidential descendants, celebrity journalists, award-winning historians, presidential advisers and cabinet members, congressional legends, and more.

Since its launch, Wild About Harry—the premiere event celebrating and advancing President Truman’s legacy and library—has raised $10 million in support of nationally acclaimed education and outreach programs that foster civic learning and engagement.

In 2010, the Truman Library Institute inaugurated the Harry S. Truman Legacy of Leadership Award, now an annual WILD event highlight. Together, the dinner and award ceremony provide invaluable support to the mission that mattered most to President Truman after leaving the White House—establishing his presidential library as a “Classroom for Democracy” where young people, especially, would be inspired and prepared to lead lives of purpose and service.

EVENT TICKETS: ON SALE MARCH 1, 2024
