Photograph article dated January 30, 1961 partially reads, "Members of the Mary Duque Guild of Childrens Hospital are in the midst of preparations for their 10th annual Kick-off Benefit set for Sept. 22 at the Richard Harker estate in Encino. In keeping with a grid-iron theme, guests will enter under colorful goal posts and pass through a traditional ticket turnstile into the garden. Activities planned include a buffet supper, dancing to Keith Williams' orchestra and games with a football flavor. A strolling trio of musicians will play requests for the fans favorite college songs." Mary Duque Guild members pictured are, from left, Mmes. Joseph B. Flammang, Encino; Granville E. Lee and L. Jones Hawley, both Sherman Oaks.
