Are you bidding on lunch with Warren Buffett?

Bidding is underway to win a lunch with Warren Buffett. For the past 13 years, Buffett has
8724cb759aa1800f110f6a7067006d85.jpgauctioned lunch to raise money for the Glide Foundation in San Francisco.

Bidding ends Friday, so you still have time. Lunch with Warren won’t come cheap, though.

Ted Weschler paid $5.3 million over two years to win lunch with the man many consider to be the smartest investor in the universe.  A lot of money, but it landed Weschler a job with Buffett’s company, Berkshire Hathaway.

The Glide Foundation is a charity organization whose mission is “to create a radically inclusive, just and loving community mobilized to alleviate suffering and break the cycles of poverty and marginalization.”

Lunch with Buffett is expensive, but it’s for a good cause.
