BOSTON (CBS) – Rob Gronkowski is giving a couple of Patriots fans the chance to have “A Very Gronkowksi Christmas.”
The Patriots tight end is raffling off tickets to the Pats-Dolphins game on Christmas Eve, along with a chance to meet him after the game.
“Just buy a couple raffle tickets and you can win Christmas, yep, Christmas with me baby,” Gronkowski joked in the Patriots locker room on Wednesday.
Along with two tickets to the Christmas Eve matchup, the winners will get to meet Gronkowski and take photos after the game, an autographed jersey and football, and cash for parking and food.

Most important though, it all goes to a great cause.
“All proceeds go to Boys and Girls Club of Lawrence. It’s just a little a cool thing to give back to the fans. Growing up as a kid I loved doing it, and giving back to the kids can’t be any better,” said Gronkowski.
“You’ll be at the game and everything,” said Gronkowski, who leads the team with eight touchdowns this season. “You get to hang out after and get a couple of prizes and everything, so it’s cool.”
One Patriot will not be entering the raffle though.
“I don’t need any more time around him,” quarterback Tom Brady joked on Wednesday.
Tickets can be purchased online at $2 apiece, with a minimum of five per purchase, until December 19. A winner will be chosen that day.
