Win Lunch with Buffett

FINSWire Team

It's that time of year again: When beyond-wealthy businessmen vie to pay millions for the privilege of having steaks and Cherry Cokes with Warren Buffett.

The annual lunch auction lets one lucky winner -- and seven friends -- dine with the Oracle of Omaha at the Smith and Wollensky steakhouse in New York. Lunch usually lasts three hours, and the bidding is competitive. Last year, a Canadian investment firm paid $1.68 million to lunch with the Berkshire Hathaway legend.

Bidding started this past Sunday night on eBay, with the minimum bid set at $25,000. The auction's proceeds benefit the Glide Foundation, which provides social services to the poor in San Francisco. The auction closes Friday at 9:30 p.m., so if you've got a spare few million, make sure to get in your bid before then.

Of course, you always could just write him a letter with investing ideas.
