Lunch with Warren Buffett - UPDATED

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with RealBird Inc.

Updated: Winning bid is $2,110,100 - Almost 4 times of the last year's hammer price

While researching for new posts on WhatOneMillionBuys.com , I ran into an eBay auction of a power lunch with Warren Buffett. Last year, the winning bid was over $600,000. 100% of the money raised goes to the Glide Foundation.

I love the concept of using eBay for charity causes and I like the quality of the auction widget provided by eBay. See below. You can track the auction status on this page or click through to see it on eBay

Lunch with Warren Buffet would be terrific. Heard the last one went for $650,000, well under a million!

Bill - It certainly would. A little AR magic again: I saw google click-through coming in on this post for example from searches "lunch with warren" - This post is #3 above CBS News ! At this point I am certain, that the fact that this post was posted the same day the auction started 1) timely ("breaking news") and the fact that it fills information void, makes all the difference.

It should be interesting to see how much the opportunity to have lunch with the "Oracle of Omaha" will go for this year, given the downturn in the economy. Do you think this will auction for over $1m this yr? Curious what others think. http://myguesstimate.com/Comments.aspx?qid=34

The Glide foundation is a great cause.  I hope someone puts up big $ this year.  I am curious what the oracle has to say about real estate.

by the way, Do you have an outside blog that I can add to my Blogroll ?

Thanks and look forward to reading your thoughts on the world of real estate.

James - One more day to go for this auction. Hopefuly, large bidders will jump in at the end. We are speculating if it will go over $1million on our other blog

Thanks for the offer for the blog roll. Our outside blog is at http://realbird.typepad.com
