   For the sixth year, Long Islands' FOUR America Racing team will return to do battle inside Boardwalk Hall for the Gamblers Classic Championship. "The Jeffer" Jeff Heotzler will be in the teams re bodied, Mike Sparta Trucking sponsored #FOUR America TQ midget, with Jeff Heotzler Jr. driving the International Truck Parts and Equipment Wholesale sponsored #4 America 600 Micro Sprint. Each year, the team has chosen a charity to race for, however, this years will be a little different. This year, their asking that each team running the famous Gamblers Classic in all divisions and the fans as well to bring with them a non perishable breakfast food item to be donated to Sister Jeans Soup Kitchen in Atlantic City.
   A former casino chef, Sister Jean Webster (They call her "Sister Jean or "Saint Jean" or the "Mother Teresa of Jersey") found her calling over 20 years ago when she saw a homeless man rummaging through a garbage can in search of food. "I saw a man eating out of a garbage can when I was on my way to work at the Playboy Casino. I took him to Pizza King and told them to give him whatever he wanted. Then I gave him some more later at my home," she said. She didn't stop there. With her own money, Webster fed up to 35 people a day out of her home.
   Now she runs a soup kitchen that feeds up to 600 hungry and homeless people a day with hot meals at the First Presbyterian Church in Atlantic City. Sister Jean and her staff prefer to call this gathering time "The House of Happiness". No one is turned away and there are no paid employees. Sister Jean offers counseling and a program designed in conjunction with Joseph House for transitional housing. Four Americas' PR director Michael Sweet said when he first heard of Sister Jeans Soup Kitchen, it seemed like a natural fit. 'We all love the high intensity this event brings to each of us, with the lights, sounds and action of Atlantic City. Knowing how the racing community gives so much to those in need, what a great way to start the weekend by bringing a non perishable breakfast food item with them to be donated to Sister Jeans Soup kitchen'. Sister Debbie, who will be in charge Friday, Jan 16th at the kitchen, said packaged items like coffee, tea, non-dairy creamer, grits, cereal, sugar, oatmeal, pancake mix, or other canned or packaged goods, etc. will be gratefully appreciated and accepted. "We'll put it to good use," said Sister Debbie, who admits to not knowing much about racing. The Jr. Jeffer said, "Lets give them breakfast on us!" Fans and racers who would like to bring the items to the kitchen can do so Friday morning, Jan.16th between 7 and 8 AM where you will be greeted by Jeff Heotzler Jr. and the staff at Sister Jeans Kitchen. It is located at 1013 Pacific Ave., Atlantic City, NJ 08401, right across from the Taj Majal Casino.
   Also, Jeff Heotzler Jr will be accepting items at the teams trailer all weekend. Any questions or further information needed can be directed to msweet@bigapplemotorsports.com or by calling 585-738-9166.
