Anonymous fan pays $2.68 Million to have lunch with billionaire, Warren Buffett

An anonymous fan of Warren Buffett agreed to pay a whooping sum of $2,679,001 at an online charity auction to have lunch with the billionaire chairman of Berkshire Hathaway Inc. 

The winning bid came in the closing seconds of the five-day eBay auction, which drew 41 bids before ending on Friday night. 
The Money will go to Glide, a San Francisco charity that provides food, health care and other services to the homeless, the impoverished, and people struggling with substance abuse. 

The successful bidder and up to seven friends will dine with Buffett at the Smith & Wollensky steak house in Manhattan where they can freely discuss all topics apart from where Buffett will invest next. 

In the past, Buffett has held 18 annual auctions for Glide, raising about $26.3 million. He became involved with Glide after his first wife, Susan, became a volunteer, prior to her death in 2004.

Not at all, is only in Nigeria so much money kept in banks or at home. You need to read where the money is investing. American accommodate the poor in every aspect of life .

Lol! I can't help but laugh at those who said they don't know what to do with the money. Trust me, that's one of the best investment one can make.

The money is for charity, they put a lot of their money in charity. They take care of the poor in their society, not like Nigeria.
