Cost to lunch with Warren Buffett: $3.5 million

Private lunch with investor Warren Buffett sells for $3.5 million in charity auction By The Associated Press

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) ' The cost to dine with investor Warren Buffett has apparently spiked in value, with one deep-pocketed bidder forking over nearly $3.5 million.

The annual charity auction for a private lunch with the Nebraska billionaire closed Friday night following a flurry of activity in the final hours. In the end, the highest bid was $3,456,789, topping last year's $2.6 million winner.

It wasn't immediately clear who offered up the winning bid.



The auction benefits the Glide Foundation, which helps the homeless in San Francisco. Buffett has raised more than $11.5 million for the organization in 13 past auctions.

The billionaire became one of the world's richest men while building Berkshire Hathaway into a conglomerate. But he says most of the questions he gets at the lunches aren't about investing.
