It’s time for Kent Bazemore’s renowned UNO tournament

It’s UNO time.

And yes, the championship belt again is up for grabs. 

Kent Bazemore will host his fifth annual celebrity UNO and golf tournament next month to benefit his ARMS Foundation. The Hawks guard will hold the fundraiser on Aug. 11 for the UNO tournament and Aug. 13 for the golf tournament. Among those expected to attend the weekend events are the Hawks’ John Collins, the Falcons’ Warrick Dunn, the Braves’ Brian Jordan, the PGA Tour’s Marc Leishman and actor RonReaco.

The ARMS Foundation is a 501c3 non-profit with its mission statement “to promote, motivate and inspire any young child who aspires to be part of the next generation of leaders.”

The UNO tournament will be held at Westside Culture Center at 760 10th Street NW in Atlanta from 7-11 p.m. The event, which features food, drinks and entertainment, is open to the public.

The golf tournament will be held at Dunwoody Golf Club with celebrities paired with threesomes.
