Record $2.1m bid for charity lunch on eBay

No primary category set

There’s no such thing as a free lunch at least not when it cost $2.1 million dollars. That’s what someone has just paid to .

The high bid of $2,110,100.00 is the highest ever bid on eBay for a charity item with the proceeds going to the Glide Foundation. This news comes just after eBay announced at eBay Live! that they have raised more than $150 million dollars since the eBay Giving Works and eBay for Charity programs started.

The winning bidder is reported to be Zhao Danyang, a general manager at Pure Heart China Growth Investment Fund. He and up to seven colleagues will dine with Wrren Buffet at the Smith and Wollensky steak house in New York.

The high bid smashes last years Warren Buffet luncheon auction which raised a still very impressive $650,100.

  1. The winner was anonymous???

    Shoot, I wouldn’t put it past ebay to shill bid on this auction, just to raise the Q2 earnings, since is weighing them down, with millions of FREE listings, which are bringing in NO revenue. It’s covering up the boycott and shareholders need to know what’s going on.

    They’ve done much worse, with the padding of fake listings, the Skype glitch and the unauthorized paypal charge glitch, in the past week. I surely wouldn’t put it past them.

  2. I do want to auction two of my domain names to some chinese company, fortunechinesdotcom and fortune500chinesecompaniesotcom, Please suggest me way in which I can strike the right customer for that.
