2019 Super Bowl Party Highlights

Each year the team at Gamut One Studios decides to benefit a local charity through a silent auction at our Super Bowl party. We chose Second Harvest Heartland because they are one of the nation’s largest, most effective and most innovative hunger-relief organizations. Every $1 donated provides three meals.

Super Bowl 53 went down as the lowest scoring game in NFL history; however, at our 9th annual Super Bowl party, fans showed up and scored big for Second Harvest Heartland.

In addition to raising $2,827 through the silent auction, the food drive yielded over 300 items.

We want to thank all our corporate and private sponsors for donating to the silent auction. Our sponsors were: 3M, Caribou Coffee, Barb Koshenina, Chanhassen Dinner Theater, Chili’s Bar & Grill, Wild Wings, Larkin Hoffman, Claudia Wilde, Therese Bartlett, Northern Radiator, Droolin’ Moose, Wooden Hill Brewery, Frost River, Brandless, and Red’s Savoy Pizza.

The annual chili cook-off contest is one of the most talked about offerings at our party, and the biggest question each year is, “Who will take home the coveted Golden Chili Pepper Award?  This year we had 6 varieties of chili for our guests to enjoy. The chili creators are kept anonymous to the guests and each guest can enjoy all varieties, but then has just 1 token to vote for his or her favorite.

Greg Kamin’s “Rio Rancho” – a hearty cacophony of spicy, sweet and savory was the winner this year. Among the jalapeños, pinto beans, and spicy beef, Kamin also packed in bacon and sweet onions.

“I put a lot of attention to the details with this labor of love, especially my hand- picked batch of jalapeños from Rio Rancho, New Mexico,” Kamin said with a smile and a proud pose in the Gamut One Photo Booth.

As always, guests have fun in the photo booth. Enjoy a quick video here and we hope you can join us next year!

9th Annual Super Bowl Party – Feb. 3rd

Join us for the big show!

Everyone has his or her own reason to enjoy the biggest party of the year – the Super Bowl! Whether it’s cheering for your favorite team, watching the best commercials, singing along at the halftime show (this year performed by Maroon 5), or eating delicious party food – we invite you to enjoy it all with us for Super Bowl 53!

We are excited to host our 9th annual Gamut One Studios’ tailgate experience inside our 10,000 sq. ft. studio. We host this big event to express our appreciation to our clients, families, and friends – and together we also give back in our community to help those in need.

Community Support:

This year our silent auctions and food drive will be supporting Second Harvest Heartland, a fantastic hunger relief organization. Second Harvest Heartland works closely with nearly 1,000 partnering food shelves, food pantries and other meal programs.

Food Drive:

We are collecting canned, dry & non-perishable food to support local families in need. Please consider to bring one or more of these most needed items: canned tuna, ham or chicken, beef stew, chili, peanut butter, and canned or dried beans.

With an average party attendance of over 200 guests, we can make a real impact if each person were able to bring at least 1 donation.
