Lunch with Warren

"A charity auction to have lunch with Warren Buffett has hit a record before it is even over.

"Bidding for the annual lunch auction reached $3,500,100 late Monday, one day after the auction opened at $25,000. The auction to meet the billionaire and Berkshire Hathaway Inc. chairman ends Friday night. All bidders have to be prequalified to submit an offer. The auction is run by eBay and auction manager Matchfire.

"An anonymous bidder set the previous record high of $3,456,789 in 2012, and that amount was matched in 2016. Last year's winning bid, also anonymous, was $3,300,100."
