Warren Buffett and his friend Bill Gates reportedly joined with David Rockefeller Sr. to invite a group of the world's richest people to gather in one room earlier this month.
The agenda wasn't world domination. It was making philanthropy more effective.
Among the other well-known, and very wealthy names, attending the meeting on May 5 in New York City: Michael Bloomberg, Peter Peterson, George Soros, Ted Turner, and Oprah Winfrey.
The private meeting was not announced before-hand, or discussed publicly afterward, until a report on IrishCentral.com earlier this week.
