Hawks’ Bazemore to again host UNO, Celebrity Golf tournaments

It’s time to again test your UNO luck against Kent Bazemore.

The Hawks player will host his Fourth Annual Celebrity Weekend to benefit his ARMS Foundation. The public is invited to participate in an UNO tournament on Sept. 15 and a celebrity golf tournament on Sept. 18.

Bazemore founded the ARMS Foundation, a 501c3 non-profit, to promote, motivate and inspire young children who aspire to be part of the next generation of leaders.

“I was raised in a small town, so I understand and appreciate the impact a single individual can make in a community,” Bazemore said. “The UNO and golf tournaments allow fans to interact with celebrities, while raising much needed funds for deserving students and youth.” 

Bazemore recently was awarded the Phoenix Award by the City of Atlanta and the President’s Volunteer Award for his charity work and community service.

The UNO Tournament will be held at the Westside Culture Center on Friday, Sept. 15 at 7 p.m. Food, drinks and entertainment will also be available.

The golf tournament will be held at the Dunwoody Golf Club on Monday, Sept. 18 at 9 a.m. Celebrities will be paired with each foursome with spot prizes throughout the course. Among those scheduled to play are former Falcon Warrick Dunn, former Hawk Josh Smith and former Brave Andruw Jones.
