Kaitie Gallagher, 9, of Snoqualmie, and Maddie Peters, 5, of North Bend, crush grapes at a cystic fibrosis fund-raiser Oct. 14 at The Veronica Wine Bar in North Bend.

An auction of various wines also raised money for this benefit.
Gallagher, who has cystic fibrosis, is the daughter of event chairs for Snoqualmie Valley Great Strides, Ray and Cathy Gallagher; Peters is the daughter of Veronica owners Eric and Veronica Peters.
