Warren Buffett's Lunch earns Much Bucks for Glide Foundation

Alot of press on the winning bid of 620,100.00 on eBay ( to benefit the Glide Foundation) to have lunch with Berkshire Hathaway's Chairman, Warren Buffett. The winning bidder a silicon valley resident, plans to ask members of his family to join him for lunch at a NYC Steakhouse, which donated their services.

Last year, a Harley-Davidson motorcycle autographed by celebrities and offered by talk-show host Jay Leno fetched $800,100 on eBay to benefit tsunami victims- that is the highest non-profit auction on eBay. The 2006 Lunch with Warren Buffett is the second highest.

Once again, it is refreshing to see high profile celebs and business people doing good for non-profits.
