How much is lunch with Tim Cook worth?

Can you put a price tag on bending the ear of CEO of the most valuable company in the world? Apple thinks you can, and its making Tim Cook available for a brief sit down if you’re willing to cough up the cash for charity.

For the third consecutive year, bids are being taken for lunch with Cook to support the RFK Center for Justice & Human Rights. The winner not only gets to meet for an exclusive one-on-one with Cook at Apple’s headquarters, but two VIP passes to an Apple keynote.

Even with last-minute bonus, Tim Cook charity auction falls short

The second charity auction to offer a sit-down with Tim Cook has closed, and $330K has been raised by the winning bid for the RFK Center for Justice & Human Rights.

The winner, who’s identity has not been disclosed, will get to have lunch with Cook at Apple’s headquarters in Cupertino, California. Another perk was added by Cook before the auction closed, but even that failed to garner as much interest as the previous auction.
