Caption on reverse: "... the International Institute of Hawaii, (left) sells tickets to the January 20 performance of the Honolulu Symphony Orchestra at McKinley Auditorium to Mrs. Gulab Watumull at the start of a benefit ticket sale by the Institute. Under a Symphony sponsorship plan, a portion of the proceeds from ticket sales will be retained by the Institute to support its work in aiding foreign-born people through educational, cultural and social activities. Anyone wishing to buy Symphony tickets as a benefit to the International Institute may obtain them at the Institute's headquarters, 468 S. Hotel St., or by calling 55-645."
