Tim Cook Auctions Charity Lunch Meeting at Apple HQ

Charity auction site CharityBuzz is hosting a second listing to meet with Apple CEO Tim Cook at Apple's headquarters in Cupertino, California, this time offering a lunch meeting.

cookauction
The auction is the second Cook has volunteered his time for, with last year's coffee auction raising $610,000 for the RFK Center for Justice & Human Rights. The 2014 auction benefits the same cause, which aims to achieve a "just and peaceful world by partnering with human rights leaders, teaching social justice and advancing corporate responsibility."

Two people can meet with Cook for lunch, for approximately one hour. The cost of the meal is included, and the auction winner must agree to travel to Cupertino for the meeting, which will be scheduled on a "mutually agreed upon date."

The current high bid on the auction, which has an estimated value of $100,000, is at $10,000 with 19 days left to go. The auction will end on Tuesday, May 13. Due to shill bids last year, all bidders are required to submit credit card authorization to bid.

If anybody's interested in having lunch with me near my office, I'm only charging $10,000.

I hope whoever wins this bid/lunch date, at some point asks Tim what time it is? Just to see if he accidentally pulls back his long-sleeve button down to reveal the iWatch :) Of course, if he did, you might not make it back to your car!

Wow, really?

Only reason i'd like to meet him is to tell him what piece of ***** he is. Ever since he's took over all the products lost their quality! I'm speaking of the flimsy iPad air, the completely unrepairable iMac, MBPr and mostly every product they have right now. Everything is glued! It's a time where form is superior than function.

Credit card authorization... of $50k, $100k? Lol, I think I'll sit this one out. I have an AMEX business card with no set limit, but pigs would fly when they'd authorize me to spend $50k. I guess I'll have to visit Cupertino and just sit behind him when he's out to lunch.
