Office Assistant Sharen Etienne-LeBeau joined hundreds of others on June 20 in Oakland to help form the “largest soul train line.” According to the Guinness Book of World Records, the group achieved their goal.

Etienne-LeBeau works in the medical records office at California State Prison, Solano.

The previous record was held by Philadelphia with 298 dancers in 2012. The new record beat the previous by 39 people, with 337 dancers, according to the local TV news station.

The group also raised funds to send kids to a five-week camp.

“I’m an advocate for fundraising when it comes to children,” she said. “The success of breaking the record and raising money for underprivileged children to attend Summer camp is a great feeling. I’m so excited to have been a participant in becoming a Guinness World Record Soul Train line.  It was great to dance with such a diverse crowd of people who were so energetic.”
