Annually, the CEO of Berkshire Hathaway holds an auction for a lunch date. The highest bidder and seven guests join the Sage of Omaha at a steakhouse, Smith & Wooensky in New York.
The proceeds from the auction held on eBay go to our local charity Glide Memorial. Over the past 18 years the auction has raised over $25 million to help Glide’s offerings of free meals, health care and other services for the homeless and low-income.
This year’s winner was anonymous and paid $2.67 million.
