We’re Back With Our Magic Of Christmas Donation Campaign!


Melrose is excited and proud to bring you our 4th annual Magic of Christmas donation drive campaign. Beginning November 12th until December 11th we will be encouraging Calgarians to help us raise toy donations for the local Charity The Magic of Christmas!

As with previous years, we are asking for donations appropriate for teens and tweens between the ages of 12 – 17. Those of you that do donate to the toy drive we will also receive a ballot to enter into the Giving Tree contest. On December 16 we will draw 30 spots for the Giving Tree dinner and drawdown event. This will be held on December 19th, each winner will be invited to bring a guest and be treated to a full Christmas dinner before their chance to choose a prize from the giving tree.

What is the drawdown event?

All 30 names of the winners will be placed in a ballot box and pulled one by one. As each name is taken out of the box they are eliminated from the grand prize – but they still choose an item from the giving tree. The final 3 names drawn will win a chance at our grand prize!

You can drop your donations off at Melrose inside cowboys – 421 12th Ave SE Calgary, AB T2G 1A5 – Monday to Friday between November 12 until December 15th. We hope you will join us at Melrose on December 11th for our final toy drive event and if not be sure to watch our Facebook page for a live stream of the 30 name draw event for the giving tree dinner.

Lest We Forget – Remembrance Day


Remembrance Day , on the 11th hour on the 11th day of the 11th month, we take a moment to observe and remember all those men and women who have fought and served and to remember all those who continue to serve and defend us during times of war, conflict and peace.

For a lot of Calgarians, this day offers us time off from work which we may use to catch up on personal errands that have fallen to the wayside due to our busy lives. However, with so many ways to reflect on those that have sacrificed so much for our freedom, we hope you’ll consider taking in the many ways to honour our fallen with the various Remembrance Day services happening around our city.
