Sotheby's Paris auctioning off Picasso painting

Posted: Updated:

Buy a raffle ticket, win a Picasso and do some good.

That's the pitch from Sotheby's in Paris, where they're auctioning Pablo Picasso's "Man with Opera Hat," a drawing worth about $1 million.

It could be yours for the cost of a raffle ticket, $135. The winning ticket will be drawn Dec. 18, live online. Proceeds will help preserve the ancient city of Tyre in Lebanon.

To buy a raffle ticket, go to http://www.1picasso100euros.com/. Fifty-thousand tickets will be sold.
