How it Started.
Putt 4 Cass is a special event to honor Cassidy Charette, Big Sister and BBBS volunteer whose life was taken Oct. 11,
2014 in a tragic hayride accident. Cassidy was just weeks from meeting her first "Little Sister" and being the first BBBS
site-based mentor at the Alfond Youth Center. It was Cassidy's dream to have a BBBS program at her school. In Cassidy's
memory, BBBS of Mid-Maine started two ShineOnCass youth mentoring programs that match students at Messalonskee
High School in Oakland, Maine (where Cass attended high school) with children in the school community. A third program
was added to give surrounding high school students the opportunity to mentor youth at the ShineOnCass program at the
Alfond Youth Center in Waterville.
How does playing mini golf help kids?
Money raised at Putt 4 Cass is used to carefully match Bigs and Littles to ensure child safety, fund healthy activities and snacks at mentoring programs and provide professional support for children, families and volunteers to help build and sustain long-lasting relationships! This is your chance to make a BIG difference in the lives of over 100 local youth in ShineOnCass mentoring programs!

How do I get started?
Step 1: Form teams of 4 golfers with classmates, co-workers, clubs, sports teams, teachers, family and friends!
Step 2: Set your fundraising goal to make a BIG IMPACT on local kids, like Cass did! On average, golfers raise $100 each, but some raise the bar to reach over $1,400 (the cost to fund a Big/Little match for a year! ) What impact do you want to have? Teams that raise $300 or more will receive a 2019 Putt 4 Cass t-shirt!
