Apple CEO Tim Cook is offering a lunch date on charity auction site CharityBuzz. The current winning bid sits at $48,000, though the auction still has another 19 days to go. The winner and a guest will be able to snag an hour with Cook for lunch. They'll also have to get through security screening, and it may take up to a year to find a hole in Cook's schedule, according to the fine print.
Good on Cook for donating his time, in any case. Charitybuzz supports a wide range of causes, and their unique take on working with celebrities for these kinds of intimiate one-on-one meetings is bound to generate a lot of money. Cook previously auctioned off a coffee sit-down for $600,000, so this second go around is bound to generate a lot of money for charity.
What would you talk about with Tim Cook if you had an hour to sit down with him? How high do you figure this auction will go? If you want to follow the auction, hit up Tim Cook's Charitybuzz page.
