Someone paid $ 19 million for a steak lunch with Warren Buffett

An anonymous bidder paid a record $ 19 million for a private steak lunch with legendary investor Warren Buffett. The sale was part of the 21st annual Buffet Lunch Auction, produced in collaboration with eBay and the Glide Foundation, a non-profit organization from San Francisco that works to fight poverty, hunger and homelessness.
The auction started with $ 25,000 on June 12 and ended with $ 19,000,100 from an anonymous bidder on Friday, eBay said in a statement. This year’s huge sum is more than four times higher than the winning bid of 4,567,888 dollars in 2019 – the last auctions before the break due to the Covid-19 pandemic. The winner in 2019 was cryptocurrency entrepreneur Justin Sun.

The mysterious winner will enjoy a private lunch with a buffet and up to seven guests at the Smith & Wollen Steakhouse in New York, says eBay.

Unfortunately for investors who hope to surpass this year’s record, this is the last year of “trust lunch” with Buffet. The annual auction raised over $ 53 million for Glide.

“On behalf of GLIDE and those we serve, I thank Warren Buffett for his unwavering generosity, partnership and commitment, as well as his incredible contribution to our mission,” Karen Hanrahan, president and CEO, said in a press release.

The auction was first launched by the late Suzy Buffet in 2000. Since 2003, eBay has been managing the auction.

“We are incredibly proud that Warren Buffett’s last Power Runch broke our all-time record, with all proceeds supporting GLIDE’s efforts to create ways out of the crisis and transform lives,” eBay CEO Jamie Ianone said in a statement.
