Bazemore to again host UNO Tournament in Atlanta

Kent Bazemore may be headed to Portland but he won’t leave before at least one more UNO tournament in Atlanta.

The former Hawks player, traded to the Trail Blazers this offseason, will host his 4th Annual Celebrity UNO Tournament on Aug. 10. The event, which benefits his ARMS Foundation will be held at Gathering Spot in Atlanta.

“Even though I was recently traded to the Portland Trailblazers, Atlanta will always be my home and I will continue my foundation work from here as well,” Bazemore said. “The UNO tournament is a fun way for fans to interact with celebrities while raising much-needed funds for deserving students.” 

The Hawks player held his annual fundraising Uno Tournament on Friday.

Bazemore founded his 501c3 non-profit ARMS Foundation to promote, motivate and inspire any young child who aspires to be part of the next generation of leaders. 

Attendees can choose to play in the UNO Tournament ($50/ticket for adults and $35/ticket for students) or be a spectator ($25/ticket). Complimentary food and soda, as well as entertainment, is included with the price of admission. Tickets can be purchased on the ARMS Foundation website at
