A man whose identity is being kept secret has broken a record by bidding nearly $3.5 million to dine with legendary investor Warren Buffett.

An AP report said: “The annual charity auction for a private lunch with the Nebraska billionaire closed Friday night following a flurry of activity in the final hours. In the end, the highest bid was a record-breaking $3,456,789.

“The auction benefits the Glide Foundation, which helps the homeless in San Francisco. Buffett has raised more than $11.5 million for the organisation in 13 past auctions.

“The organisation says Friday’s winner bidder wishes to remain anonymous. Last year’s top bid was $2.6 million.

“Buffett became one of the world’s richest men while building Berkshire Hathaway into a conglomerate. But he says most of the questions he gets at the lunches aren’t about investing.”
