Tampa, Fla., USA, September 21, 2006 -Children's Heart Foundation, a local non -profit organization based in Las Vegas, was presented with a donation of $23,500 today from BICSI Cares, Inc. The gift was awarded during the closing session of the 2006 BICSI Fall Conference held this week at the MGM Grand Conference Center.

More than 3,000 Information Transport Systems (ITS) industry professionals from around the world not only came to network with peers and share their knowledge, but to share their big hearts by helping troubled little hearts.

"BICSI Cares is excited to present this donation to Children's Heart Foundation," said BICSI Cares Committee Chair John Discenza. "Through the generosity and goodwill of BICSI members and conference attendees, we are able to support the efforts of charities dedicated to improving children's welfare right here in Las Vegas and throughout the world."

Through donations and volunteer participation, Children's Heart Foundation is able to fulfill its mission to improve the care and quality of life for children in Nevada who are born with or develop heart problems.

"Children's Heart Foundation is extremely grateful to be selected for the BICSI Cares gift," said Children's Heart Foundation Manager Shannon Bentham. "As a small organization, this contribution will help continue our mission to enrich the lives of the children we serve."

For more than twenty years, BICSI donations have benefited children in cities across the U.S. and in other countries.
