Commercial Chaos for a Cure coming through Hull

Over 100 semi-trucks will be rolling through Hull Saturday, July 22, in an effort to raise money for a good cause.

Commercial Chaos for the Cure is a poker run to benefit the June E. Nylen Cancer Center in Sioux City. The day also includes a fun-filled evening with a free-will dinner, raffles and games for kids.

The event kicks off Saturday at 10 a.m. at the Sioux County Fairgrounds in Sioux Center. All of the semis will head out together at 11 a.m. for a poker run throughout northwest Iowa, making stops in Inwood, Rock Rapids, Sibley, Hull and then back to Sioux Center.

The truckers will stop at Cenex in Hull around 4:30 to pick up a card for their poker hand. This is the third year Cenex will be hosting a stop.

“We picked Cenex because it’s big enough to accommodate all the trucks,” explained Paul Schelling, president of Commercial Chaos for a Cure and a Sioux Center resident. “Last year we had 87 trucks; this year will be over 100. That’s why we need a big place to stop. We’ll also have people working the event who will be at each stop to help line up trucks so they all fit in the space.”

Commercial Chaos for a Cure is also teaming up with the Iowa DOT this year to help with traffic control.

The semis will come into Hull from Sheldon on Highway 18 and, after the Cenex stop, they’ll drive to Sioux Center on Highway 75.

This is the fourth year of Commercial Chaos for a Cure and it just keeps growing.

“I think truckers have fun getting together with everybody and this is something different,” explained Schelling. “Plus a lot of people have had connections with the June E. Nylen Cancer Center or they know someone fighting cancer and they just want to help.”

Last year the event raised over $9,000 for the center.

When the poker run is finished, the public is invited to join the truckers at the fairgrounds.

“We really want people to know that anyone and everyone is invited to come to the free-will meal and fun during the evening. We really want to see more of the community come out,” Schelling said.

The evening activities are scheduled to begin around 5:30 p.m.
