Have you ever had a deep desire to meet an Apple executive? The RFK Center for Justice and Human Rights will soon be receiving more than $190,000 thanks to the generous heart of Apple CEO Tim Cook. For them to do so, however, someone must win a charity auction sponsored by the man himself.
At the time of this writing, the bid of the auction sits at just under $200,000. With 19 days left to bid and the auction getting more publicity, I could see it surpassing a quarter million dollars.
Bid now on this unique opportunity to have coffee with Apple CEO Tim Cook at Apple headquarters.
Tim Cook is Apple’s CEO and serves on its board of directors. In 2012 he was named a runner-up to TIME’s Person of the Year and topped Vanity Fair’s New Establishment list. Before being named CEO in August 2011, Tim was Apple’s Chief Operating Officer and was responsible for all of the company’s worldwide sales and operations. He also headed Apple’s Macintosh division. Tim earned an MBA from Duke University, where he was a Fuqua Scholar, and a Bachelor of Science degree in Industrial Engineering from Auburn University.
Proceeds go to the Robert F. Kennedy Center for Justice and Human rights. The organization has put together a group of more than ten cultural icons–from Paula Deen to Tim Cook–to help support it. While many of the others are sitting at paultry single-thousands, Cook’s auction has blown up and spread virally.
If someone reading this article just happens to be interested, you can head over to charitybuzz and place your bid. To top $190,000, you must bid at least $195,000 and you only have 19 days left to decide to do so. Choose wisely–the details of the auction state that the experience will only be “30min – 1 hour.”
Also, for the Android fanboys out there, you don’t get to bash the guy; the rules state that “polite manners and respect for the generous donor and adherence to any rules or parameters are a must.”
