Want to Lunch with Warren Buffett?
Every year, Warren Buffett offers up the opportunity to have lunch with him in an auction that benefits the Glide Foundation. The tradition of auctioning a lunch began in 2004, when Buffett first became involved with the San Francisco nonprofit, which offers programs to help the poor, hungry and homeless. In early years, lunches often sold for $25-30,000, but when they switched the auctions onto eBay in 2003, making them much more visible, the numbers shot up dramatically. Last year's lunch with Warren sold for $351,100.
The auction will begin on June 22 and the starting price is $25,000.
