THANK YOU to all who joined us for WILD ABOUT HARRY! This year, the annual fundraising event served as a 137th birthday celebration for President Truman. The coast-to-coast tribute spanned the nation, with guests tuning in from New York to California, Texas to Virginia, Florida to Washington D.C.

It's not too late to be part of this WILD-ly successful event! Give a gift in honor President Truman by donating to the Truman Statue Campaign or the Stay TRU Capital Campaign. (Keep scrolling to learn more!)

But the best birthday gift we can give to our President is to Stay TRU. TRU to President Truman's values, TRU to history, TRU to public service, TRU to this great nation he served so well.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, HARRY!
