An anonymous bidder has paid $6,05,000, the highest amount ever, for a half an hour meeting with Apple's chief Tim Cook in a charity auction for celebrities' time.
In the auction organized by Charitybuzz website, this bid surpasses the earlier auction of an entire day with former president Bill Clinton that stood at 225,000 dollars although it reaches the site's previous record in March when a Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4 Roadster was auctioned at 610,000 dollars, The Guardian reports.
The highest bidder, calling himself as just 'J*****n', who will be paying 20,000 dollars- a- minute, outbid the other bidders which included companies that make accessories and covers for Apple devices.
According to the report, the auction bid of coffee with Tim Cook is considered as the highest grosser on the website since the company's launch in 2005, adding that the company expects to raise over a million dollars for human rights.
The report further said that the website, which donates the money from the auctions to Robert Kennedy Centre for Justice and Human Rights, has earlier auctioned for time with celebrities such as U2's Bono, Paul McCartney, cars, autographed instruments and also a walk-on part in Scary Movie5.
Auction at Charitybuzz is now restricted to bidders who have proved their financial bona fides to a bank so that the bids become certain to be paid, the report added.
