Tim Cook Isn't a Cheap Lunch Date
Apple CEO is letting people bid on the chance to have lunch with him.
-- Tim Cook isn't a cheap lunch date.
Bidding for face time with the Apple CEO has skyrocketed to $160,000 since the opportunity was posted on Wednesday. Proceeds from the auction, which ends May 6, will benefit the Robert F. Kennedy Center for Justice & Human Rights.
The top bidder this year will win a one hour lunch with Cook at Apple's Cupertino, California campus, along with two tickets to a future Apple keynote address.
It's the third year in a row Cook has put his time on the auction block to benefit the organization.
Last year, the lunch went for $330,001, while a coffee meeting the year before brought in $610,000.
If you think that's expensive, it's only a fraction of what wealthy bidders have paid for the Gilde Foundation's annual charity lunch date with Warren Buffett.
The Oracle of Omaha has commanded bids of more than $2 million in previous years.
