Charity in-conversation dinner with ‘The Good Cop’ Ron Iddles
Join us for a unique charity dinner and in-conversation event at 360Q on Friday April 27. Our special guests will be Ron Iddles OAM APM, one of Victoria’s most decorated homicide detectives (now retired) and Selba Gondoza Luka, Mental Health Clinician, family violence campaigner and CEO/Founder of African migrant outreach organisation, Afri-Aus Care.
Ron will share experiences throughout his time as one of Victoria’s most senior detectives who worked on many high-profile and often controversial cases over the course of his illustrious career.
Selba will share her personal experience with emotional family violence and abuse as a migrant to Australia, and speak about why she founded Afri-Aus Care and the wonderful success stories of those who her organisation has assisted in Melbourne.
360Q owner Barry Iddles, Ron’s twin brother, said he was very excited about the opportunity to host the event.
“Ron has had such a distinguished career in the Victorian police force and as secretary of the Police Association and I am incredibly proud of his achievements,” he said. “Since the launch of his book Ron has been sharing his life’s work with people who would not normally get an insight into the role of a homicide detective and we’re looking forward to having him at 360Q.
“We’re equally excited to host Selba Gondoza Luka who has such an important story to share about her personal experiences as a migrant coming to Australia, but also about the great work she is doing with African youth and their families. It’s going to be a great night for charity and we hope to raise enough money to kep Selba and her team to keep on doing their great work.”
Copies of Ron Iddles’ biography, The Good Cop by author Justine Ford, will be on sale at the event. Ron will be on hand to sign copies of the book for guests, with profits going to Afri-Aus Care.
And $20 from each guest’s ticket price will also be donated to the group to continue to provide support services to migrant youth from African and other culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds and their families, who are at risk or experiencing mental health issues, family and intergenerational conflict or are in the court system due to offences arising from these circumstances.
Tickets are $120 and include a gourmet three-course menu by 360Q’s talented team of chefs, wine, beer and soft drinks as well as the presentations by our guest speakers.
Doors open at 6pm, entree served at 7pm.
