How can I display a currency value that is different than the user's culture in a templated grid item?

I wanted to know if there is an event/method for templated ASP.NET datagrid items where I can specifically set the culture that values are rendered in.

Example:  The user is viewing the page in Japanese, but all prices need to be listed as US prices with the $ currency while all other resources need to still be in Japanese.  For a specific datagrid and templated column, how can I set the culture that a particular column's values are rendered under.

Currently code like the following would show a price of 30 as 30¥ instead of $30.

<asp:TemplateColumn HeaderText="Example">
    <asp:Label ID="PriceLabel" runat="server" Text='<%# Eval("Price", "{0:C}") %>'></asp:Label>
