e2k has produced the annual Castilleja School for Girls View360 fundraising event since 2009. In 2013, the event was held at the Oracle Conference Center, and featured appearances by Martha Stewart, author Isabel Allende, and JC Penney’s Nina Garcia and Nick Wooster, plus performances from acclaimed dance troupe Pilobolus and a special “Trashion Show” in which some of the school’s students designed, manufactured and modeled their own gowns made from recycled and repurposed materials.
The theme of the night was “Action”, and in addition to hosting a powerful evening of conversation and performance, the ‘Casti’ community raised more than $600,000 toward their school scholarship fund. Given todays’s economic challenges, this annual fundraiser ensures that every current Castilleja family has the opportunity to receive financial assistance when necessary. One hundred percent of net contributions from the evening are fully committed to scholarships, providing immediate assistance to students and their families.
In 2012, guest speakers included Pixar founder John Lasseter, Emmy-award winning producer and writer David Kelley, comedienne extraordinaire Betty White, and Wicked and Glee star Kristen Chenoweth sharing their perspectives on the event theme, “Imagination.”
