In an effort to raise money to save the ancient and historical city of Tyre, Lebanon, French TV host Peri Cochin has teamed with Olivier Picasso, Pablo Picassos grandson , here posing with the painting entitled LHomme au Gibus or Man with Opera Hat in New York December 3, 2013, to create a lottery like none before. The UNESCO-registered charity has issued 50,000 tickets at 100 euros ($135) each for the first-of-its-kind tombola on December 18 at Sotheby's in Paris, hoping to raise $5 million. It wants the money to develop a traditional handicraft village giving young people, women and the disabled jobs in Tyre and to set up an institute for Phoenician studies in Beirut.
