    BELVEDERE-TIBURON, Calif., March 3 /PRNewswire/ -- Internet casino
 GoldenPalace.com has touched a nation of hippies and Deadheads, as well as a
 worthy charity, with their latest eBay purchase of four toilets formerly owned
 by the legendary Jerry Garcia.

     The casino paid just over $5000 to buy the toilets from Henry Koltys, who
 bought Garcia's 7500-sq-ft house at auction in 1997.  He decided that he would
 sell the items in the house, with the money going to charity.  Proceeds from
 the auction will go to The Sophia Foundation, and Kids-First Custody and
 Parenting Software.
     "We appreciate this donation by GoldenPalace.com to help the Sophia
 Foundation create a free version of KidsFirst! parenting software to help
 protect children during separation or divorce," said Koltys.  "We look forward
 to further collaboration with GoldenPalace.com to obtain additional
 contributions and are glad to know the toilets are in good hands.  With over 1
 million divorces in the US and Canada each year, over half with children,
 there is a real need to help parents avoid conflict and focus on the
 children."
     "We are happy to be able to help such a worthy cause and wish The Sophia
 Foundation all the best in their efforts," said GoldenPalace.com spokesperson
 Drew Black.  "We plan to include Mr. Garcia's toilets in our traveling museum,
 along with our other eccentric items.  Expect the museum's long strange trip
 to be coming to a town near you sometime this year."
     GoldenPalace.com wants fans to have some fun with this acquisition,
 allowing them to take a load off while sitting on the Deadhead King's throne,
 and maybe even take a picture of their moving experience.
     Setting the standard in marketing creativity, GoldenPalace.com has devised
 some of the most exciting and outrageous advertising campaigns in the past few
 years.  Recently, items such as William Shatner's Kidney Stone, Britney Spears
 Pregnancy Test, and the Virgin Mary Grilled Cheese Sandwich have garnered
 extensive worldwide media attention for the casino.  GoldenPalace.com has also
 used several of their advertising campaigns to generate over one million
 dollars for various charities worldwide.
