Beneath is the code I'm using.  I'd like to offer the user the ability to restore the id of whatever it is they just deleted.  In order to do that I need to pass the id back to the view file:
	function admin_delete($id = null) {
		if ( !$id ) {
			$this->Session->setFlash('Invalid event', true);
			$this->redirect(array('action' => 'index'));
		}
		if ($this->Event->softDelete( $id )) {
			$this->Session->setFlash( 'Event deleted', true , array( 'restoreID' => $id ) );
			$this->redirect( array( 'action' => 'index' ) );
		}
	}

Found a way to make this happen myself:
		if ($this->Event->softDelete( $id )) {
			$this->Session->setFlash( 'Event deleted', true );
			$this->redirect( array( 'action' => 'index/restoreID:'.$id ) );
		}
