OMAHA, Neb. >> A private lunch with billionaire Warren Buffett has been sold to the highest bidder for more than $2.6 million during an annual charity auction.
The bid was $2,679,001. The winner wishes to remain anonymous.
Last year’s bid of $3,456,789 tied for the record highest bid. In 2012 the winner also paid $3,456,789.
This year’s eBay auction began Sunday and wrapped up Friday night.
The auction benefits the Glide Foundation, a San-Francisco-based homeless charity. Buffett’s first wife, Susie, volunteered with the organization before her death in 2004.
