If you’d like to have lunch with the world’s most famous investor, you’d better be prepared to write a really big check.
On Sunday, Berkshire Hathaway‘s (BRK.A, BRK.B) Warren Buffett launched his annual charity auction on eBay (EBAY). Up for bid is a lunch with the “Oracle of Omaha” at the Smith and Wollensky steakhouse in New York City, CNN notes.
Buffett has been holding the auction for 14 consecutive years. Proceeds benefit GLIDE, a charity that serves disadvantaged people.
Bidders have paid more than $15 million to have lunch with Buffett since the auction was started in 2000. An unnamed bidder paid $3.5 million for the privilege last year.
The minimum bid in the auction is $25,000.
