The Super Bowl Frenzy is now over with the Seattle Seahawks defeating the Denver Broncos. However, the true winners were the guests at last night's 'Catch Party' benefitting Autism Speaks.

Four-time Super Bowl Champion and three-time Super Bowl MVP, Joe Montana along with two-time Super Bowl Champion, Dwight Clark shared their pregame predictions and analysis. A special VIP meet and greet area gave fans a chance to shake hands and ask questions in person to these football legends, one-on-one.

Over 20 flat screen TV's and a wide variety of food and beverage sponsors also made the evening quite wonderful. Guests enjoyed delectable sushi rolls, prime rib, sautéed spinach, au gratin potatoes, mixed green salad as well as mini cupcakes by baked by Melissa as well as many other general vendors.

A silent auction featured artwork from famous bands (including Jimi Hendrix and Pink Floyd) and high-end handbags along with an assortment of other fine goods with proceeds going directly toward the Autism Speaks charity.

During half-time a few lucky individuals had the opportunity to recreate one of football's most historic catches with Joe Montana.

The Edison Ballroom also has quite a rich history. Elle Magazine hosted a party last year with Kelly Roland of Destiny's Child performing. The Edison Hotel originally opened in the 1930's and was constructed in classic "art deco" design.
