Now, I wonder what they'll talk about at the lunch - could Buffet impart enough advice to justify $620K?

the $620K is being given to a non-profit foundation. Did youall know that Warren Buffet if giving about 85% of his billions$$$ to the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, this will about double the amount of money the Gates Foundation will be able to give..... talk about a few commited people being able to change the world......WOW

ahhhhhhhhhhhh it's not a buffet, it is lunch with Warren Buffett, the 2nd richest person in the world, but I guess he will lose that distinction once he starts giving his money away...........
