As the video at the end shows, the 10-year-old girl is surrounded by a group of attentive onlookers.

It’s the end of the tournament and it’s down to just her and one other guy. In Uno, the first player to get rid of their cards wins the game. This girl was about to shock the world.

In the one-minute video, you quickly see the girl’s cards dwindling down. Suddenly, she has one left and the crowd waits in anticipation.

In a few quick moves, she throws down her last card, winning the game. It isn’t long before Kent Bazemore rushed over to her, vaulting the young champion above the crowd. The victory was hers that day, and everyone loved it.

Perhaps the best part? This was all for a worthy cause!


Bazemore Goes Up In ARMS

As a child, Kent Bazemore’s parents told him that community and charity were essential to thriving in our society. Now that Bazemore is an established professional basketball player, he looks to help out with the ARMS Foundation.

Established in 2012, this foundation invests in young people and inspire them to reach their full potential.

Achieving A Lifetime Of Success

To help young people achieve a fulfilling lifetime of success, they use engaging programming combined with other organizations sharing the same ideals as the ARMS Foundation. Financial servicing opportunities like scholarships also help these kids accomplish their goals.

Since 2012, the ARMS Foundation has received multiple awards for its commitment to the community.

Now, what does this all have to do with Uno?
