WEBWIRE – Friday, June 26, 2009
A winning eBay bidder and (up to) 7 of their friends will be spending 3 hours with Warren Buffett at the Smith & Wollensky Restaurant in New York. The price $351,000 does not include travel, accommodations, or gratuity… But, some still think this years lunch (with Warren) winner got a bargain.
While the most expensive lunch item on Smith & Wollensky’s menu is only $59, for the Australian lobster tail. The $1.6 Million winning bid, which is donated to charity, appears to be a real deal compared to last years price.
According to James Massey, publisher of www.WhatSellsBest.com, a website which tracks the current Top 20 best selling eBay items. “Last years (Buffett) lunch winner paid $2.1 Million, so it appears this years winner got a discount"
All proceeds (From the winning bid) are being donated to The Glide Foundation a San Francisco based charity.Related Links
