The auction to have a private lunch with Billionaire Berkshire Hathaway CEO Warren Buffett is now over after an anonymous person put in a winning bid of $4,567,888.
The bid surpassed last year’s, which was $3.3 million, and exceeded the previous record, which was $3,456,789, according to The Wall Street Journal. The person who made the winning bid can bring up to seven friends to go to lunch with Buffett at Smith & Wollensky steakhouse in New York City.
The founder of the steakhouse makes an annual donation to the Glide Foundation, which helps the homeless in San Francisco, The Wall Street Journal reported. Buffett began working with Glide through his late wife, Susan, when she volunteered at the charity. Susan Buffett died in 2004.
