Messalonskee High School Girls Soccer and the ShineOnCass Foundation plans to host its sixth annual girls youth soccer mentoring day, “Shine on Saturday,” from 9 to 11 a.m. Sept. 18.

The event — to be held on the Messalonskee Grass Soccer Field, behind Messalonskee Middle School in Oakland — honors former Messalonskee soccer player and youth mentor Cassidy Charette, who died in a hayride accident Oct. 11, 2014.

Area girls, ages pre-K to fifth grade, can attend free of charge; no soccer skills are required.

In addition to field games, attendees will receive an autographed team poster and a ShineOnCass wristband that earns them a snack and recognition at Lady Eagles’ home soccer games this season.

To assist in planning, people can register by emailing their child’s name and age, parent/guardian name and contact info to [email protected]; walk-ins are welcome.

The ShineOnCass Foundation was created to educate, inspire and empower youth to shine their own light through kindness and volunteer charitable activities.
