An early Christmas gift from Eugene Melnyk

Friday, 23.11.2012 / 2:09 PM Ottawa Senators

Twelve special children from Ottawa were treated to a very special evening thanks to Ottawa Senators Owner Eugene Melnyk. The children watched tonight’s Justin Bieber concert from Mr. Melnyk’s suite.

The children ranged in age from 5 to 15 years of age and were selected by the Children’s Wish Foundation, CHEO and Roger’s House. Mr. Melnyk also arranged Christmas gift bags for his special guests and arranged a surprise visit by Santa who took time away from his busy elves to welcome the children.

“Christmas is always an important time of the year for me and my family. And celebrating Christmas is about doing something special for others. Justin Bieber one of the most exciting acts in music and I wanted to give these children an evening they would simply never forget.”
