The Middleton Good Neighbor Festival Trustees are proud to announce that Charlotte Deleste will be the 2014 Parade Marshal.

Deleste is best known for waking up viewers with a smile on the weekday News 3 This Morning Show.
 
In 2012, she became a “good neighbor” in Middleton when she opened the doors to Gio’s Garden, a non-profit respite center, located at 2028 Parmenter Street. 
Named after her son, Gio, this beautiful facility is a therapeutic respite center for special needs kids, from birth through six-years-old who need special care; providing them, their parents and caretakers a much needed break from their day to day routine.
 
Gio’s Garden grew out of Deleste's frustration of trying to find adequate care and respite services for her son. Their names went on waiting lists and to this day, their wait continues for those other facilities. 
 
Realizing there are others in the same situation, she decided to help the already stressed system by creating another option for families who need help now, those who do not have the luxury of time to wait on lists, family to rely on, or those who are on their last thread of patience and running on empty. With the help of other parents, therapists, and nurses, Gio’s Garden was born.
 
Since opening two years ago, Gio’s has provided more than 5,000 hours of care to nearly 50 children, and has worked with 70 families providing respite care and/or resources.  Deleste would like to thank the entire Middleton community for its support and commitment to Gio’s Garden, and remember to “Do Something Good.”
