OMAHA, Neb. — An anonymous bidder agreed Friday to pay more than $2.6 million for a lunch with billionaire investor Warren Buffett, offering a final amount after the auction closed that topped last year's bid that set a record for the most expensive charity item ever sold on eBay.
When online bidding ended Friday night, the high bid fell short of the record, standing at $2,345,678. However, organizers say the bidder wanted to spend more to top last year's $2.6 million and settled on a final amount of $2,626,411.

wow,he must think he'll be getting great money making advice for that bid!
If I had the money to do something like that and could part with that kind of money, then the lunch would definitely be something worth the spend in the end.
Warren Buffet is definitely one very unique individual with a very keen insight.
So, I'd be up for it.
