Would you pay $75,000 for lunch with Ford's CEO?
If you want to eat with the boss, it’s going to cost you.
Ford CEO Mark Fields is auctioning off a lunch date at the company’s HQ in Dearborn, Mich., with the proceeds going to charity. Fields will host the winning bidder and a guest for a one-hour lunch date at Ford’s penthouse dining room.
Bidding on CharityBuzz.com ends at 3pm EDT Thursday, and as of 9:26 am had reached $75,000. The auction benefits Focus: Hope, a Detroit civil rights organization that runs food and career training program.
But there’s an informal competition at stake, too.
Earlier in October, GM CEO Mary Barra held a similar auction for Detroit’s College for Creative Studies that went for $100,000.
Is a meal Fields worth as much as one with Barra?
Check back this afternoon to find out.
