Buffett Charity Lunch Goes for Record $2.6 Million


An anonymous bidder topped his or her own winning offer to set a new record in this year's Warren Buffett charity lunch auction.

The high bid at the scheduled end of the auction was $2,345,678. While notable for its consecutive digits, it fell below the $2.6 million paid last year by another anonymous winner.

We're told, however, that "the winning bidder wished to top last year’s record-breaking bid and pledged the additional amount" needed to bring the price for this year's lunch up to $2,626,411.

All of the money again goes to Glide, a San Francisco anti-poverty organization.
