A gaming company in China won the charity auction this year and has the opportunity to have lunch with Warren Buffett. They also have a great sense of humor because their final bid was $2,345,678. This is not a record-setting amount by any means, but it is one of the highest amounts that Warren Buffett fans have paid over the last few years.
Da Lian Zeus Entertainment Co. is an online gaming company that is based out of Beijing, and they are the winner of the 16th annual lunch auction that is set up to help benefit the Glide Foundation based out of San Francisco. The Glide Foundation helps to provide funds for the homeless and poor in the city of San Francisco.
This year’s winning bidders did so on behalf of the company instead of on behalf of a specific individual. And since the winning bid came from China, it proves that Berkshire Hathaway and Warren Buffett have made many Chinese fans in recent years. Last month in Omaha, more than 200 Chinese investors attended the annual meeting held for Berkshire Hathaway.
The winning bid did not succeed the highest ever winning bid which was for $3,456,789 made by an anonymous bidder in 2012. But it is higher than the amount that Andy Chua of Singapore paid last year at $2.16 million.
