OMAHA, Neb. — Billionaire Warren Buffett is auctioning off an all-you-eat tour of the See's Candies factory in California to benefit an education nonprofit there.
Bidding had already reached $30,000 by Monday, but it remains to be seen whether the final price of this auction will rival the annual auction of lunch with Buffett which routinely tops $1 million.
The online auction that runs through Aug. 13 will benefit Communities In Schools of Los Angeles. It is being offered on the charitybuzz.com website.
Buffett says he'll teach the auction winner the proper way to eat a bonbon during the half-day tour. Buffett's Berkshire Hathaway conglomerate has owned See's Candies since 1972, and he spends hours munching on See's treats while answering questions at Berkshire's annual meetings.
Buffett did not immediately respond to questions about this new auction Monday.
