Apple CEO Tim cook has put up for Internet auction a meeting with him for lunch at the new headquarters of Apple in Cupertino Park, California, to raise funds for a human rights center named after Robert F. Kennedy. To bid on the charity auction website CharityBuzz.
Meeting with Tim cook will be held in the new Park campus of Apple in Cupertino (California). The conversation over lunch will last for an hour. The winner who offered the highest amount for a meeting with the CEO, will also receive an extra ticket. The price includes food for two persons. Transport costs and accommodation, under the terms of the auction will have to pay yourself.
A similar event is held for the fifth time. Last year for the opportunity to have a Cup of coffee with the head of Apple paid $515 000. In 2015, for a meeting with the head of the most expensive in the world corporations gave $200,000, the 2014 year is $330 000. The record was set in 2013: unidentified paid for the meeting with cook at $610 000. The funds went to the Center for justice and human rights.
The collection from the current auction will go there too, to build “a just and peaceful world.” This organization works with the leaders of the movement for human rights, conducts lectures on issues of social justice and corporate responsibility.
Sale of Lunches and dinners under the hammer is a fashionable and prestigious form of charity in the United States. A pioneer in the way of “coffee philanthropy” became billionaire Warren Buffett, who in 2012 earned $3.46 million to Glide Protestant-Fund. Businessman prefers to meet with winners of the auctions in the Steakhouse.
Who will win the battle for meeting with the head of Apple this year is anyone’s guess. But CEO promises to invite the winner in Apple Park and spend at least an hour of his time, which in itself is not cheap.
