Charity Dinner and Events to Honor Vincent Price

The late film legend Vincent Price performed at Truman more than any other university in the country. He established the Vincent Price Theatrical Performance Scholarship, a legacy that continues to support Truman students today. This fall marks the 30th anniversary of Price’s 1985 Homecoming visit.

Victoria Price, the daughter of Vincent Price, will be on campus Oct. 8 for a charity dinner and presentation.

"A Treasury of Great Recipes" 50th Anniversary Charity Dinner will take place at 6 p.m. in the Georgian Rooms of the Student Union to benefit the Vincent Price Theatrical Performance Scholarship. The dinner will feature an “around the world” gourmet tasting featuring selections from Vincent’s cookbook, “A Treasury of Great Recipes.”

Following the dinner, there will be an evening of entertainment, including a free presentation by Victoria Price at 8:30 p.m. in Violette Hall 1000.  

“An Evening with Vincent Price and Edgar Allan Poe” will take place at 9:30 p.m. in Baldwin Hall Little Theater. This event is free and open to the public.

The evening concludes with a performance of “The Raven” and a screening of the first film in a series of Edgar Allan Poe adaptations between Price and director Roger Corman — “The Fall of the House of Usher.” Free popcorn will be provided by Truman’s Career Center
