A lunch date with Warren Buffet runs in millions


Warren Buffett needs no introduction. With $55.9 billion under his belt, he is the 4th richest person. And like every year, he hopes that this year too some generous person bids millions for a lunch date with him. This big sum will not hit Buffett’s personal bank account but it will benefit the Glide Foundation, which provides social services to the poor and homeless in San Francisco. Starting with a minimum bid of $25,000 on eBay, the auction will close on Friday. Though a Canadian investment firm shelled out $1.68 million last year, the 2008 bid broke all records. For $2.11 million, in 2008 a Chinese investment manager bagged the honor of acquiring the most expensive charity item on eBay ever. However modest Warren Buffet maintains that its not only his popularity but the works of Glide that has moved bidders to pay exorbitant amount for the lunch in the past. Hoping that 2010 bidding breaks all records!
