*Beverly Hills, CA – Entertainers from around the country gathered again for another BET Weekend in Los Angeles. The kick-off began with events popping up all over the city, including one of the most anticipated: Miss Diddy’s annual Toast to Young Hollywood.
This year The Brand Group LA and Limitless hosted the Toast to Young Hollywood event at the prestigious Four Seasons hotel in Beverly Hills, CA and true to fashion, the creator of the event, Miss Diddy, brought out the best of trailblazers, influencers, celebrities and rising stars who are pushing the culture forward. Honorees and attendees included H.E.R., Rotimi, Daymond John, Kevin Frazier, Mona Scott-Young, Dorion Renaud and many others.
EUR’s Robin Ayers and videographer Hashim LaFond were on the scene to capture the magic of the night and what seemed to be an infectious, positive energy in the air.

“What’s the key to your longevity and success,” asks Robin, talking to Grammy award winning music manager, Jeff Robinson.
“You know, a wise man once said to me, ‘find something you love to do and do it forever’ and that’s just what I’m doing. I’m following his great advice.”
That seems to be the common thread of the night’s successors who are advising and coming stars. “Stay true to yourself,” as Miss Diddy says and go after your dreams. Also, once you have achieved those dreams, reach back and show someone else how to do the same for themselves.
After networking during the cocktail hour, the awards segment of the night began. Beautiful speeches amongst acknowledgments both towards the honorees and the creator of Toast to Young Hollywood herself, Miss Diddy, who agrees that shining light on others is a sure way to never let your own light dim down.
