Every year Warren Buffett, the richest person in America to make his billions on something other than software we all despise, auctions off the opportunity to dine with him and seven friends at a New York power lunch for charity. The beneficiary of this year's charity auction is San Francisco's own Glide Memorial Church which Buffett has called, "...maybe the most effective organization I've seen for people down on their luck."
The charity stands to pull in a lot of money from Buffett's support — as NBC Bay Area points out, last year's lunch with Warren auction topped out at $2.6 million. As of Monday afternoon, bidding has already broken $2 million on the steak lunch at Smith & Wollensky's in New York City. Interested rich people have until Friday at 7:30 p.m. to top the current bidder, who seems pretty hungry for that prime rib.
