How Much Would You Pay for Lunch With Tim Cook?

...

Ever wish you could sit down with Tim Cook and pick his brain over a bite to eat? Your dream could soon become a reality.

For the fourth consecutive year, the Apple CEO is hitting the Charitybuzz auction block to raise funds for RFK Human Rights, an international human rights organization founded by Robert Kennedy's family and friends. The winning bidder will get to spend an hour of alone time with the CEO over lunch at Apple's headquarters in Cupertino, and receive two VIP passes to an Apple keynote event.

Those vying for the chance to break bread with Steve Jobs' successor better have some deep pockets and money to burn. With nine days left to go in the auction, the current bid sits at $125,000.

If history is any indication, it could go much higher. Last year, one eager Apple fan ponied up $200,000 for a one-hour sitdown with Cook and a keynote invite. In 2014, a fan paid even more — $330,000 — and that time around the prize just included lunch, no keynote. Cook's first charity auction in 2013 raised $610,000 for RFK Human Rights.

This year's action ends on Thursday, May 5, so keep checking the site and get your bid in while you can.

Cook has over the past few years developed quite a reputation for his philanthropic efforts. Word has it that the CEO is planning to give away his estimated $785 million fortune to charity — but only after paying for his 10-year-old nephew's college education.
