Tron (TRX) founder and CEO Justin Sun has won an eBay charity auction to have lunch with renowned investor and Berkshire Hathaway CEO Warren Buffett. The news was revealed in a press release shared with Cointelegraph on June 3.
Sun reportedly bid a record-breaking $4,567,888 to win the charity auction, which has been held by Warren Buffett for the past 20 years.
Bloomberg reports that the winner, who had previously been unnamed, will be able to bring seven friends along for lunch with Buffett at a steakhouse in New York.
All proceeds from the auction benefit the San Francisco-based non-profit GLIDE Foundation. As the press release notes, GLIDE focuses on fighting injustice and inequality on behalf of economically deprived and oppressed communities in need, including the homeless, those from ethnic minorities or of LGBTQ orientation.
Buffett’s wife is reported to have been a GLIDE volunteer before her passing in 2004, since which the investor has upheld his own commitment to the foundation, reportedly raising over $30 million to date in auction proceeds.
