Bids for private lunch with Warren Buffett top $1 million

Jun 1, 2015 5:17 PM by News Staff

The price of a private lunch with Warren Buffett is already over $1 million, and the online auction continues all week.

The top bid Monday afternoon was $1,000,100, so the California charity that will receive the proceeds is guaranteed another significant donation.

Buffett is chairman and chief executive of Berkshire Hathaway, and many people want the 84-year-old's advice on investing, philanthropy and life in general.

Through the annual auctions, Buffett has raised $17.9 million for the Glide Foundation, which provides social services to the poor and homeless in San Francisco.

Bidding continues until 9:30 p.m. CDT Friday. Last year's auction winner paid $2,166,766, but the 2012 auction set a record with its $3,456,789 winning bid.
