RICHLAND -- Handmade wine charms, lemonade and goodies made by a group of young girls helped them earn $303 for the Children's Developmental Center in Richland.
The center provides early intervention services to infants and toddlers with developmental delays by empowering families and assisting children to reach their potential.
Kristin Pilgrim, 11, and her sister Rachel, 7, together with their friends, made wine charms from wire and beads, each one unique. They also made lemonade and had cookies and brownies.
They sold the items at their parents' winery, Terra Blanca Winery in Benton City.
Their parents, Keith and ReNae Pilgrim, are longtime supporters of the center.
Each year the center's board and staff sell wine glasses at Spring Barrel Tasting and Catch the Crush at the Terra Blanca and the Pilgrims donate all wine glass sale proceeds to the center.
This year the girls set up a table in the area people entered the winery during Catch the Crush on Sept. 24 and used an information board provided by the center and their own handmade signs explaining their project.
On Friday, they presented $303 to the center.
