Buffett plans to donate almost all the money earned over a long life to charity.
On eBay, the right to a private dinner with one of the world’s richest men, Warren Buffett, sold for a record $19 million.
All proceeds from the sale go to a charity that helps poor and homeless Americans.
Under the terms of the auction, the winner can bring up to seven guests to dine with Buffett. The meeting will take place in a New York steakhouse.
The last lunch with the CEO of Berkshire Hathaway took place in 2019 and cost the bidder $4.5 million. No auctions have been held in the last two years due to coronavirus concerns. The same dinner, according to the 91-year-old Buffett, will be his last.
– It was exceptionally good. I met a lot of interesting people from all over the world. They are united by one thing – they believe that the money will be used for profit, the billionaire commented on the practice of such auctions.
In all, since 2000, Warren Buffett has raised more than $53 million for philanthropists in this way.
According to Forbes, the CEO of Berkshire Hathaway and one of the most successful investors of all time is ranked seventh in the world with a fortune of approximately 93.4 billion dollars. By the way, Buffett plans to donate almost all the money earned over a long life to charity.
