When a group of local women slide into sleek outfits for a retro-style pin-up photo shoot, they have more in mind than looking pretty. With all profits benefiting the University of Virginia’s Emily Couric Cancer Center, Firefish Gallery’s Pin Up Show offers more than meets the eye—it’s beauty with a purpose. It’s not often that the words “non-profit” and “pin-up” find themselves yoked together, but supporting a cause has never looked so good.

Through 1/4 $15, times vary. Firefish Gallery, 108 Second St. NW. 984-1777.
