(Reuters) - Warren Buffett's annual auction to benefit a San Francisco charity has drawn a bid of more than $1 million, surpassing last year's top offering, with a day of bidding remaining for a chance to eat lunch with the billionaire investor.
After less than two days, bidding for lunch with Warren Buffett has blown past the $610,000 someone paid in a charity auction last month for coffee with Apple CEO Tim Cook. The top bid for a steak lunch with Buffett is now just above $700,000 and will almost certainly go much higher before the 14th annual "Power Lunch" auction ends Friday night at 10:30 p.m. ET.
