On the Croisette, away from Cannes hustle and bustle, in the gardens of the five-star Grand Hotel, between sea and palm trees, was held on June 7 a unique charity event organized by Try Me Luxury and Charity magazine and the Cabinet Frederic Paul Goux architect.
Luxury is the main editorial line of the magazine, with sections about fashion, lifestyle, automotive, watches, exceptional destinations, exclusive interviews … and themes that will still expand over the releases, with new sections in the making: design, architecture, golf … and new signatures for writing. The Try Me magazine, with its voucher system, helps promote donations for three associations represented in the issue, but not only! The magazine donates 5% of its advertising budgets to a charity or environmental association.
