Lunch with Warren Buffet costs $3.3 million
An anonymous bidder bagged for $3.3 million the rare opportunity to sit down with Warren Buffet for lunch.
Last Friday’s sell-off on eBay was the third highest. Throughout the 18 years the billionaire investor and philanthropist has been offering the private luncheon, the highest bid stood at $3,456,789 in 2012 and 2016.
The winners usually dine with Buffett at Smith and Wollensky steak house in New York City.
The payment for a private luncheon will be turned over to the Glide Foundation’s which aims to help the homeless in San Francisco. The foundation sources a big chunk of its annual revenues from the Buffet’s auction which has so far raised a total of $26 million for its charity work.
Buffett is the CEO of Berkshire Hathaway which has a major stake in Coca-Cola Co., Apple, American Express and Wells Fargo & Co, among others.
The meal with Buffet remains the most expensive charity items ever sold on eBay.
