Bidder bids $35000 for tour of Bill Gates Lake Washington property


We have come across many auctions where bidders have not shied away from shelling out massive sums of money to be with their favorite celebrity or even experience their unique lifestyles. At one such charity auction, a bidder has won himself the chance to visit the Gates’ Lake Washington property along with his friends and family. And the guide during this tour will be none other than the owner himself, Mr. Bill Gates! Just what exactly was the amount that clinched the deal for this winner, you ask? Well, the answer is $35,000 (last year the winning bid was a mere $8,500)! For this humongous sum, the winner will get to mingle with the Microsoft founder and get a sneak peek into his luxury property.
