Lunch with Warren Buffett @ $3.4 million? Sold!

A private lunch with Omaha billionaire Warren Buffett has been sold to the highest bidder at $3.4 million during an annual charity auction

The bid of $3,456,789 ties for the record highest bid. In 2012, the winner also paid $3,456,789.

This year's winner wishes to remain anonymous.

The weeklong eBay auction began Sunday and wrapped up Friday night.

The auction benefits the Glide Foundation, a San Francisco-based homeless charity. Buffett's first wife, Susie, volunteered with the organisation.

Susie Buffett died in 2004, but the connection between Warren Buffett and Glide's founders has endured.
