The Castellana Foundation, Peter Castellana III on behalf of the Castellana family, Western Beef and parent company Cactus Holdings, proudly support HB Studio in the Manhattan neighborhood of Greenwich Village. Through support from The Castellana Foundation, HB Studio is able to invest in the preservation of their historic buildings and provide the environment necessary for its staff, students and faculty to explore and enrich their artistic talents.

Here is more information on HB Studio, taken from their website:

“Conceived as an artistic and working home, the Herbert Berghof Studio offers an outlet for practice and growth for the professional theatre artist and an opportunity for the young to establish roots in their intended craft. The Studio’s guiding principle is creative freedom, which has as its logical consequence, a responsibility to a noble art.”


The Lorge School Performance Day

Located at the heart of Chelsea neighborhood in Manhattan, the Lorge School was chartered by New York State over fifty years ago to provide a special education for students with learning and emotional disabilities, which can prevent them from functioning well in a community school.

The students had an incredible 2016 Performance Day and were able to share in a community lunch with other families.  Everyone left with a full stomach and a happy heart.

Peter Castellana III, Peter Castellana Jr. and the Castellana Foundation are happy to contribute the efforts of making a better community by supporting the students of Lorge School service.
