Have Lunch with Warren Buffett for Just $3.46 Million?
A typical lunch at a high-end Manhattan steakhouse for nine people might run
$1,000 or so, but when Warren Buffett is the guest of honor the price can rise
to $3.46 million.
That is how much an as-yet unknown bidder paid in the annual online charity
auction for the right to lunch with the "Oracle of Omaha" and seven friends at
the Smith & Wollensky steakhouse in Manhattan.
The proceeds were up compared to last year, when fund manager Ted Weschler
bid $2.63 million to have lunch with Buffett. The 81-year-old Nebraska
billionaire ended up hiring Weschler last September to be an investment manager
at Berkshire Hathaway.
