Chris Conley puts new film’s theme into action at Strikes For Kids charity event

Chris Conley was spreading the love and passing out backpacks at last night’s Strikes For Kids charity event in Blue Springs.

Over the weekend, Chris Conley was out in the streets of downtown Kansas City shooting and directing for his new movie, Love Color — a short film that’s centered around the message of spreading love and positivity.

And Tuesday night, the Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver was putting that same message into action at the Strikes For Kids charity bowling event that took place at Lunar Bowl in Blue Springs, Missouri.

“It comes down to practicing what you preach and I’ve got to show the love if I’m want to tell people that they need to spread it then I need to spread it myself,” Conley said about using Strikes For Kids as a way to spread the love.

Hosted by Conley, the event, which benefitted the Boys & Girls Club, donated backpacks to children in the community — helping to prepare them with a necessary school supply before the upcoming school year.

Strikes were thrown, as were some gutter balls, backpacks were passed out and four lucky winners even walked away with signed photos of Conley — who stopped by every single lane to meet with every child, family and donor in attendance.

Conley will go from bowling balls to tossing footballs as he heads down to St. Joseph, MO for his first day of Chiefs training camp Wednesday afternoon.
