Welcome to our Sixth Annual
Pinup on the Plains!


Yvonne Denault Photography invites you to  a magnificent evening at the Avalon Event Center West on Friday, October 2nd, to celebrate women and beauty. This event is for women only. The doors will open at 7pm and we will be offering a pinup photo booth, giving away fabulous door prizes, providing a fashion show and a live band to end the evening. We are also giving away a FREE $875 package boudoir shoot complete with hair & makeup! Book or confirm a shoot the night of the event for deep discounts on shoot packages!

This year, we will also be making a donation to the YWCA Cass Clay as a result of this year's event, and raising money through a silent art auction. The YWCA Cass Clay is dedicated to eliminating racism, empowering women, and promoting peace, justice, freedom, and dignity for all. Programs and services provided by this great organization are: emergency shelter for women and children, shelter children's services, education and employment, transitional housing and racial justice.

We will have a stellar hostess that evening, with Robbie Daniels from the The Fox Morning Show at 107.9 The Fox. Enjoy the decadence of fine desserts by The Avalon's culinary chefs and an amazing lingerie and fashion show, put on by the staff at Yvonne Denault Photography. We are also excited to announce that we have booked a live band this year -- dance to the entertaining performance of Brat Pack Radio!

Several cash bars will also be set up for your enjoyment. We will also have our partnering businesses at the event to showcase their unique products and services geared toward women. This all-women event is an opportunity to enjoy an evening out with friends wearing your best cocktail dress or pinup attire. Glam up with accessories and no worries if you will be over (or under) dressed! For more on what to wear, visit our event details page!

Event Features

Robbie Daniels

We welcome The Fox Morning Show host, Robbie Daniels from 107.9 The Fox, to our event this year for the third time as an emcee to help guide us through the evening. Robbie has been instrumental in helping establish the 61-for-61 Roger Maris radiothon to support cancer care, research and survivorship at the Roger Maris Cancer Center. Robbie is also an honorary member of the "Sassy Survivors". We are pleased to have this amazing woman from our community as part of our event. Listen to Robbie and Dave every morning from 6:00-9:00 am, and 10:00 am - 2:00 pm on 107.9 The Fox.

Brat Pack Radio

For eight years and running now, Minnesota-based Brat Pack Radio has been performing far and wide across the globe. From Midwestern venues & festivals near home, to the Russian coast, private shows all over Europe and 1,001 points in between, they continue to turn heads with a polished, high-energy, non-stop Supershow that can only be described as seriously fun. Co-frontman Ryan Lance is a 4-time Emmy Award-winning songwriter, and also a founding member of a cappella darlings The Blenders, who have produced 14 albums over the last 20 years.Brat Pack Radio slant strongly toward dance-pop favorites and R&B hits. Add to that the visual spectacle - everything from knife-juggling and spinning keyboards to stylish choreography and an impressive LED light show -- and it is evident Lance and company have created a winning formula that continues to draw flocks of Gen X-ers and non-80s fans alike out to shows and onto the dance floor!

Studio Fashion Walk

Our BIG entertainment for the evening will be a fashion show, touting designs created in our studio along with other lingerie, pinup and glamour attire suitable for a photo shoot, specifically from our new boutique, Vivie's Lingerie Boutique in Moorhead. Get unique ideas for what to wear for a shoot and expand creativity beyond just the bra and panty. Enjoy watching women of all ages and sizes strut the catwalk in great designs put together personally by Yvonne's team.
