“Apple CEO Tim Cook has now participated in two charity auctions through the site Charitybuzz, first raising $610,000 for coffee with the CEO then $330,000 for lunch and an invitation to an Apple event,” Zac Hall reports for 9to5Mac, “and now Apple SVP of Internet Software and Services Eddy Cue is offering his time as well in an effort to raise money for a good cause.”
“The winning bidder for the Apple executive’s auction will specifically win the opportunity to have lunch with Eddy Cue at Apple’s campus in Cupertino, California, as well as a 13-inch MacBook Air,” Hall reports. “Money raised from the winning bid in Eddy Cue’s auction will support the National Association of Basketball Coaches Foundation.”
