Bidding window opens for annual Buffett lunch auction

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - Billionaire Warren Buffett will again try to sell the world's most expensive lunch this week to raise money for a San Francisco charity that helps the poor and homeless.

Over the past 15 years, Buffett's lunch auction has raised $17.9 million for the Glide Foundation.

He has often said that Glide gets remarkable results while helping "people that society had given up on."

The 16th annual lunch auction starts Sunday with a $25,000 minimum bid on eBay, and continues until 9:30 p.m. CDT Friday.

If this year's auction at least matches last year's winning price of $2,166,766, Buffett will have raised more than $20 million for Glide.
