Philanthropy

Con Dedes, as a philanthropist with diverse business interests, has built Dedes Group from basic principles instituted by his father Stavros, such as “look after your people son”, great service, dedicated staff and the very best produce available seasonally. These qualities exemplify all of the Dedes Groups venues and concepts.

Dedes is proud to have ongoing partnerships with two Australian charities.

Heart Research Australia: By raising funds for research into the treatment and prevention of heart disease and associated medical conditions, the foundation aims to help reduce the devastating impact of the disease on the community.
