Lunch with Warren Buffett: These lunches with the billionaire investment banker isn't a new trend. In fact with every passing year the amount the lunch fetches has been increasing. Last year, fund manager Ted Weschler bid $2.63 million to have lunch with Buffett. The 81-year-old Nebraska billionaire ended up hiring Weschler to be an investment manager at his company Berkshire Hathaway.
The previous 12 auctions have raised more than $11.5 million for a San Francisco-based charity Glide, which sponsors a variety of programs for the disadvantaged, from meals for the needy and housing to community clinics. Buffett was introduced to Glide by his late first wife Susan.
