Remember the Gritty portrait? For a good cause, here's how it can be yours

Flyers

Want an immaculate portrait for your dining room?

Gritty and Flyers Charities have you covered.

Remember the early-February game in which Gritty modeled (not wearing his Reverse Retro jersey) leisurely on a sofa pretty much the full 60 minutes to have a portrait done of himself by local artist Benjamin Davis?

Yeah, that game. You know, the usual things done by the furry orange fella.

Well, Flyers fans, you have a chance to win that famous painting of Gritty, and it's all for a good cause.

On Monday, Flyers Charities launched a sweepstakes for the "Gritty Reclined" ... what a name, by the way.

Fans can enter the sweepstakes right here at FlyersCharities.com, with prices of $10 for three entries, $20 for 10 entries, $50 for 60 entries and $100 for 200 entries. All proceeds will benefit Flyers Charities.

The sweepstakes end next Monday at 11:59 p.m. ET and the winner will be drawn the following day at 10 a.m. ET.

Gritty does have one reasonable request: he asks that he can hold onto the painting until the end of the season, when it will then be sent to the winner.

The portrait seems to follow him everywhere; he's very proud of it.
