Apple CEO Tim Cook’s coffee date charity auction fetches $610,000

In what was initially the most expensive date idea, seems to have bore fruit in a chance to meet the CEO of the most successful company in recent times and ask him anything Apple, has ended with a final bid of $610,000. All 86 bids were placed for the opportunity to sit down with Cook (and a friend of the winner’s choosing) for between 30 and 60 minutes at Apple’s Cupertino headquarters. With such large chunks of cash at stake, Charitybuzz required independent bank qualifications once bids crossed the $500,000 mark.Proceeds will go to The RFK Center for Justice and Human Rights.

The coffee rendezvous was valued at $50,000 according to auction terms travel costs not included — but that figure was eclipsed soon after bids kicked off. My oh my, we could never imagine any kind of date cost this much.
