Dinner at Buffett's childhood home draws no bids
OMAHA, Neb.—No one bid on a catered dinner at billionaire investor Warren Buffett's childhood home in Omaha during an eBay auction to benefit Girls Inc. of Omaha.
Girls Inc. offered the dinner with a minimum bid of $6,000, but no one took the bait before the auction ended Friday.
The problem may have been that the dinner didn't include access to Buffett himself. Instead, Girls Inc. was offering dinner for up to 10 guests at the home where Buffett lived with his parents and sisters until he was 6.
Last year, an annual lunch with Buffett that benefits San Francisco's Glide Foundation sold for more than $2,626,411.
Guests at the Girls Inc. dinner were to receive a personal video of Buffett welcoming them and sharing memories of the house.
