Warren Buffett

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) β€” An anonymous bidder has shelled out a record $19 million for a private lunch with billionaire Warren Buffet at a steakhouse in New York City.

The meal with the Berkshire Hathaway CEO was offered on an eBay auction to benefit the San-Francisco based charity GLIDE.

The winner can bring up to seven guests. This year’s event will be the first private lunch offered with the 91-year-old billionaire since the previous record-setting bid of $4.5 million in 2019.

The past two auctions were called off due to the pandemic. Buffett, who says this will be the last charity lunch, has raised $53 million for GLIDE since the auction began in 2000.
