Buffett has taken part in the Power of One Charity Auction – which was conceived by his late wife Susan, who died in 2004 – for more than 20 years to raise money for the Glide Foundation, one of Buffett’s favorite charities which supports people experiencing homelessness in San Francisco.

This year’s winner and up to seven guests will have the chance to join Buffett at New York’s Smith & Wollensky, where Buffett has hosted the lunch since the first auction in 2000 (and where a 26 oz. prime rib goes for $74).

The online auction will begin June 12 and last for five days with bids starting at $25,000.

Glide did not say why this year’s charity lunch will be the final one, but Buffett will turn 92 in August.
