One Hour of Tim Cook’s Time Worth $610,000 to Rights Group

A mystery bidder has shelled out more than half a million dollars to win a charity auction for an audience with Apple CEO Tim Cook. On Tuesday afternoon, bidding for a 30-minute to 60-minute chat with Cook over coffee closed at online auction site Charitybuzz. The winning bid: $610,000 — more than 12 times the $50,000 opening price, and tying the winning-bid record for the site. Proceeds from the auction will be given to the Robert F. Kennedy Center for Justice and Human Rights, an international nonprofit founded as a memorial to the late Sen. Kennedy.
