The mystery winner will enjoy a private lunch with Buffet and up to seven guests at Smith & Wollensky Steakhouse in New York City, says eBay.
Unfortunately for aspiring investors hoping to top this year’s record, this is the last year of the “power lunch” with Buffet. The annual auction has raised over $ 53 million for Glide.
“On behalf of GLIDE and those we serve, I thank Warren Buffett for his unwavering generosity, partnership and dedication, and for his incredible contribution to our mission,” said Karen Hanrahan, the organization’s president and CEO in the news release.
The auction was first started by the late Susie Buffet in 2000. Since 2003, eBay has managed the auction.
“We are incredibly proud that Warren Buffett’s final Power Lunch has broken our all-time record of funds raised, with all proceeds supporting GLIDE’s efforts to create pathways out of crisis and transform lives,” said eBay CEO Jamie Iannone in the release.
