A new group of Corridor women are joining together through one of their creative passions and their desire to do good for the community.

Hashly Haze, a photographer and lover of the popular 20th century pin-up art form started the CR Pin-Ups group in June. Her goal was to gather a group of women who want to empower each other and volunteer at charity events. As an incentive for ten hours of volunteering, Haze offers a free pin-up photo shoot to members.

After participating in several community events, the first even they're hosting is this Sunday, October 14th, called "Pin-Up and Pay it Forward."

From 4:00-7:00 p.m. at Aces & Eights in the Czech Village, the group will host games, dollar karaoke, a silent auction, billiards, and raffles. They'll also have a self defense center presenting a few moves. All ages are invited and encouraged to dress up in either pin-up attire or a Halloween costume.

All proceeds will be donated to the National Missing Persons Foundation in honor of Mollie Tibbetts.

Those who cannot attend may donate here.
