Big Brothers Big Sisters of Mid-Maine will hold a mini golf fundraiser Putt 4 Cass from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, May 19, at Gifford’s Famous Ice Cream & Mini Golf, 170 Silver St., in Waterville. A raindate is set for May 20.

The second annual event invites schools, businesses, athletic teams, clubs and organizations to form mini golf teams of four players, choose their preferred hour to golf, register online and raise funds for local BBBS mentoring programs, then join the community on May 19 to Putt 4 Cass. Last year’s event raised more than $25,000 for local programming.

“Big Brothers Big Sisters one-to-one mentoring programs support hundreds of local kids and give high school students the opportunity to make a meaningful difference in a child’s life,” BBBSMM Executive Director Gwendolyn Hudson said, according to a news release from the organization. “This special event and our successful ShineOnCass programs will help remember and honor Cassidy for years to come.”

The event will include course challenges with hourly prizes, ShineOnCass T-shirts for team fundraising, and Gifford’s ice cream. Presenting sponsors are Golden Pond Wealth Management, Hammond Lumber Company, Smile Solutions of Maine, Waterville Area Women’s Club, G & E Roofing and Gifford’s Famous Ice Cream. Additional support opportunities are available, including hole sponsorships and volunteers are welcome.
