The lunch with Tim Cook charity auction has raised over $330K

Just how much does it cost to have lunch with Tim Cook? A CharityBuzz auction just ended where the winner paid at least $330,000 to do just that with the Apple CEO in Cupertino, California. Though the charity auction site does not disclose the final winning bid, AppleInsider posted a screenshot of the auction price right before the listing closed showing a price tag of $330,001, suggesting that the price is a minimum to winning the lunch with Cook.

The money raised will go to the Robert F. Kennedy Center for Justice and Human Rights. A similar auction for coffee with Cook a year ago went for $610,000.

The auction winner could bring a guest with them and both persons would have to undergo a security screening before getting any physical face time with Cook. The caveat is that due to Cook's busy schedule, it could take a year before scheduling happens.
