Online bidding on EBay for the annual "Power Lunch" with Warren Buffett begins Sunday evening, June 6 and ends Friday, June 11 at 10:30p ET.
The minimum opening bid will be $25,000. All bidders must pre-qualify.
Last year's auction was won by Canada's Salida Capital with a bid of $1,680,300. Buffett hosted the high bidders last February, sitting down for steak and conversation at Smith & Wollensky in Manhattan. (See the WBW post Mr. Buffett: 'For a Million-Seven, You Can Call Me Warren.')
While that's a lot of money, the high bid did come in below 2008's winning bid of $2.1 million. It was also the first year since 2004 that we didn't see a new record high for the auction.
All of this year's winning bid will once again go to the Glide Foundation, a Buffett-endorsed group "working to alleviate human suffering and poverty in the San Francisco Bay Area."
"In recent decades, our country’s rising tide has not lifted the boats of the poor," writes Warren Buffett.
