OMAHA, Neb. — Billionaire Warren Buffett will again auction off a private lunch to hopefully raise millions for a California homeless charity.
The annual auction to benefit the Glide Foundation, which provides social services to the poor and homeless in San Francisco, was announced Wednesday.
Last year’s winner paid $3,456,789 to dine with Buffett. The winning bids have topped $2 million for the past five years.
Bidding for the lunch on eBay will begin on June 2 and continue through June 7.
Buffett is chairman and CEO of Omaha, Neb.-based Berkshire Hathaway and a prominent philanthropist. He says he doesn’t think anyone is better at providing help than Glide.
The winner can invite up to seven friends to join the lunch at Smith & Wollensky steakhouse in New York City.
