This evening we gather to support a new frontier for the Child HELP Foundation which was renamed with its new mission on July 10, 2007. Established by Dr. Basilio N. Bautista, the Foundation helps children who are physically and mentally challenged. The financial goal from this evening’s event is to double the Endowment proceeds managed by the Delaware Community Foundation allowing for grants to nonprofit organizations serving children in Kent County with disabilities. The Child HELP Foundation also partners with Variety – The Children’s Charity, VSA Arts of Delaware, Best Buddies Delaware and other organizations to carry out the mission. This past September, The Biggs Museum of American Art, in partnership with the Child HELP Foundation & VSA Arts of Delaware successfully presented Young at Art which showcased artwork created by children with special needs and opened the eyes of the attendees to the incredible potential that exists for these children when exposed to the arts. Tonight is an opportunity to unwind and enjoy a fantastic evening of food, fellowship, and philanthropy with great music and a silent auction to support a cause that will truly make a difference to the children of Kent County. Please remain involved in the future of the Child HELP Foundation, enjoy this wonderful evening, and thanks for the generous support of all supporters and volunteers. Sincerely,
Mel and Peni Warren Event Chairpersons

President’s Message Friends and Supporters of Child HELP Foundation: On behalf of the Board of Directors of the Child HELP Foundation, I would like to thank you all for joining us in this evening’s event. Your attendance demonstrates your support for the Foundation’s worthy cause, that of helping children with disabilities in Kent County. The Foundation may only be one year old but it has already started to make a difference in the lives of some children with disabilities in our community. In January of this year, it sponsored children in Dover High School at the Special Olympics bowling tournament at the Rodney Village Brunswick Bowling Center. The joy and the excitement that I saw in their faces, and their expression of gratitude that someone cared and believed in them is more than enough compensation for all the hard work that we, in the Board have done to put the Foundation on its feet. In helping these children, we have become more motivated and more passionate to work harder for them. In September, for the first time in our community, in cooperation with the Biggs Museum and VSA Arts of Delaware, Child HELP co-sponsored an art exhibition of the works of children in the special education program of W.B. Simpson Elementary School at the Biggs Museum. The proceeds of tonight’s fundraising event will go to the Foundation’s Endowment Fund at the Delaware Community Foundation and the proceeds from these investments will be given as grants to other non-profit organizations that serve children with disabilities in Kent County. Our mission is not impossible at all. We have passionate, dedicated and tireless members of the Gala Committee whose efforts made this event possible. Equally important is the unselfish support of members of our community who have made not only monetary contributions but have given their precious time, talent and efforts for the success of this event. With all sincerity, I give you all my profound gratitude. In my heart, you are all philanthropists, good Samaritans. As a plastic surgeon in training and in active practice I have spent countless hours working with children with disabilities, and they have secured a special place in my heart. I cannot forget and will not forget them. It is the memory of those children that provides me the inspiration to help other children who live in the like difficult world. The Child HELP Foundation is indeed fortunate to have people who recognize the plight of these children, and are willing to lend their helping hand in pursuit of its mission. To all of you who in one way or another have touched the lives of these children, on their behalf, I give my profound gratitude, sincere admiration and utmost respect. Basilio N. Bautista, M.D. President

s President of the Colonial Rotary Club I would like to take the chance to say how important it is to support organizations like the Child HELP Foundation. During the past forty plus years as an educator not many have understood the importance of working with under-servedpopulations such as those with Autism. My nephew is the same age as my 36 year old daughter. His father and mother have given their life supporting their son who is a model student in Fresno California. He has achieved greatness and has been recognized by a state organization that provided a job, career and many opportunities to advance his education. Twice he was selected to travel to Hawaii to provide testimony for the importance of working with those with autism. His father Charles Parks passed away in an industrial accident and now his mother and brother continue to guide Chuckie so that eventually he will be able to take care of himself if anything should happen to his mother Sallie. The Colonial Rotary Club is proud to support the Child HELP Foundation. The Foundation will be establishing a scholarship in the name of the Colonial Rotary Club through the Delaware Community Foundation. The $2,500 will be matched and increased to $5,000. Dr. Donald A. Parks President of the Colonial Rotary Club
