MONDAY, MAY 29, 2006 -- The world?s number one internet casino and poker room helped set a world record for Most People Dressed as Smurfs last week with 290 costumed people participating in San Francisco's famous ?Bay to Breakers? foot race.

Aside being dressed as the popular 80?s cartoon characters, the smurfs were also wearing the GoldenPalace.com logo on their backs and pushing a 1700-pound magic mushroom down the street. The event helped raise thousands of dollars for the Lucile Packard Foundation for Children's Health.

Known today as ?Smurf to Breakers?, the world record attempt was conceived by three graduates of Stanford Business School as a way to have fun while also raise money for local charities.

"The Smurfs" were created in 1958 by 16-year-old Belgium cartoonist named Pierre Culliford also known as Peyo. In 1981 Smurfs traveled to the U.S. and were popularized by an NBC series that ran for 256 episodes earning two Emmy's.
