“Tim Cook’s third annual CharityBuzz auction ended this afternoon, earning $200,000 for the Robert F. Kennedy Center for Justice and Human Rights,” Juli Clover reports for MacRumors. “The auction, which had more than 20 bids, includes a one hour lunch date with Tim Cook at Apple’s headquarters in Cupertino and two VIP passes to an Apple keynote event to watch Apple unveil new products.”
“Though the auction earned an impressive $200,000 for the RFK Center, it brought in less money than previous auctions held in 2013 and 2014,” Clover reports. “In 2013, the inaugural CharityBuzz auction for a coffee date with Cook brought in an impressive $610,000, and 2014’s lunch auction ended at $330,001.”
