Buffett has been auctioning a meal at his company there every year since 1999. Donates the proceeds to the homeless in San Francisco, California. Due to the crown pandemic, the expensive lunch with the investor legend has been canceled twice. This year is expected to be the last such event with the 91-year-old.
