Messalonskee High School Girls Soccer and the ShineOnCass Foundation plan to host the eighth annual girls youth soccer mentoring day, “ShineOn Saturday,” from noon to 2 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 23.

The event, held on the Messalonskee High School Turf Field in Oakland, is held to honor former Messalonskee soccer player and youth mentor Cassidy Charette, who died in a hayride accident on Oct. 11, 2014.

Area girls, ages pre-kindergarten to fifth grade, are invited to attend at no cost. Soccer skills are not required.

In addition to participating in skill building and field games, attendees will receive an autographed team poster and a ShineOnCass wristband that earns them a snack and recognition at the Lady Eagles’ homecoming soccer game. Healthy snacks will be provided, according to a news release from Monica Charette with the foundation.

For more information or to register visit shineoncass.org, or email the child’s name and age, parent/guardian name and contact information to shineoncass@gmail.com; walk-ins are welcome.
