Cross Object Field Update. Need Help

Hello guys.

I really need some help with this.

What I implemented already
I have a custom object called Candidates which contains a Contact Name. The Contact is the master object and Candidate is the detail object. So this means, when a new Candidate is created form contacts, it brings over the contact name.


My problem
 When I click "New Event" from Candidates, how can I automatically populate the "Name" field which is a standard Event field with the contact that is associated with the Candidate?  I tried doing this with a custom link as I did on top but I can not find the value and lkid for the "Name" field for events when i view page source. Any idea what I can do?   This way, the user doesn't have to search the contact name in the event. If you guys couldprovide information that would be great.
