You can review RCW 66.44.270 (Furnishing liquor to minors — Possession, use — Penalties — Exhibition of effects — Exceptions). The statute is at http://apps.leg.wa.gov/rcw/default.aspx?cite=66.44.270 .
Whether the statute would apply to your specific example depends on additional facts. For example, was the daughter a willing consumer of the alcohol?
