2011 Buffett Lunch at $2.345 Million, Four Days to Go

Email  Print Print  

Recession? Not if you’re the type to bid on an eBay auction for lunch with Warren Buffett. The 2011 lunch for eight with Buffett is now guaranteed to exceed all but last year’s top bid of $2.63 million and there are still three and a half days to go. Looking at the bidding, it appears to be a hot and heavy tussle between two bidders. It looks like someone put in a reserve and the other is probing to find out what the reserve seems to be, finally discovering that it’s at $2,000,000.

It’s now $280,633 short of last year’s mark, with the current bid at a cute $2,345,678 (couldn’t spare the 90 cents? or the extra ten million to complete the trend?), think we’ll break it?

  1. Does he donate that money to charity? Because surely he doesn’t need it. It would be interesting to be at that dinner.

    Check out this condition of sale (ouch!):

    “The Lunch experience may be cancelled due to illness or unavailability of the principal individual(s) without refund or reschedule.”

    it is interesting to me to see how much the winning total has increased over the years. that said, i think it would be great to sit down and have a meal with warren. not only would i certainly gain some knowledge, but warren just seems like a great guy to sit and talk with.
