The mysterious 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 “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 commitment, and for his incredible contribution to our mission,” said the organization’s President and CEO Karen Hanrahan in the press 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 latest Power Lunch has broken the all-time record of fundraising, with all the revenue supporting GLIDE’s efforts to create ways out of crisis and transform lives,” said eBay CEO Jamie Iannone in the release.
