St. Francis De Sales School for the Deaf

Peter Castellana III, Peter Castellana Jr. and the Castellana Foundation, along with Western Beef were pleased to contribute to the Golf Outing After School Program of Brooklyn based St. Francis De Sales School for the Deaf. The donation enables them to let their students participate in sports, recreational and academic programs to enhance their socialization and learning.

St. Francis was started by Sr. Anne Behre on September 13, 1960 in a convent in Flushing, New York with four children. In 1963, the school moved to the Park Slope section of Brooklyn in order to accommodate more students. In 1965, St. Francis became a private state supported 4201 School, one of eleven schools serving deaf and blind students in New York State. In 1973, St. Francis moved to its present location on Eastern Parkway where it continues today to educate profoundly deaf children from infancy to eighth grade.
