The event will honor Marc Morial, former New Orleans mayor and current chairman/CEO of the National Urban League; Donna Byrd, publisher of theroot.com; and Laurence Boschetto, CEO/president of Draftfcb for advancing the diversity agenda in America.

Aug. 8, 2012 - PRLog -- NEW YORK (August 8, 2012) - More than 100 leaders in the philanthropic, business and entertainment industries will gather for the 3rd annual Diversity Affluence Brunch in the Hamptons, an exclusive, invitation-only event celebrating individuals who have achieved success as a minority or who have advanced the diversity agenda in America. The private brunch and awards ceremony will take place August 19 at B. Smith's on Long Wharf Street in Sag Harbor.

The 2012 honorees are Marc Morial, chief executive officer, National Urban League; Donna Byrd, publisher, The Root; and Laurence Boschetto, chief executive officer/president, Draftfcb. The brunch will be hosted by A.J.  Calloway, New York City correspondent on "Extra," and former host of popular B.E.T. show "106 & Park: B.E.T.'s Top 10 Live." Each honoree will be presented with a Baume & Mercier watch.

"The Diversity Affluence Brunch is about honoring individuals who are driven and determined to empower others and are relentless in their pursuits," says Andrea Hoffman, founder and chief executive officer of Diversity Affluence. "Our honorees wake up each day to make the journey easier and blaze trails for future generations. They should be celebrated."

The Diversity Affluence Brunch in the Hamptons was created by Diversity Affluence, the New York-based consultancy specializing in diversity marketing communication, research and business development. Sponsors of the 2012 brunch are Draftfcb, Baume & Mercier, JPMorgan Chase, and Belvedere (the world's first luxury vodka).

Inspired by the highly-touted book, "Black Is The New Green: Marketing to Affluent African Americans," co-written by Hoffman with Len Burnett, the brunch will provide the corporate sector with access to some of the most influential leaders and key tastemakers of the affluent African and African American communities.

"Diversity Affluence is committed to raising awareness of the vibrant affluent ethnic economic sector that people of color and other minorities occupy in contemporary society," says Hoffman.
