MADRID (MarketWatch) -- The 15th annual charity auction of a power-lunch with Berkshire Hathaway's (BRK/A)(BRKA) chairman Warren Buffett closed on Sunday with the winning bid coming in at $2,166,766. Andy Chua of Singapore made the highest offer, according to The Wall Street Journal. There were a total of 121 bids for the lunch, which will be held at Smith & Wollensky in New York City on a date agreed between the winner and Buffett. The winner also gets to invite seven friends to dine. The winning bid was much higher than last year's lunch, which brought in $1 million, but still off a record $3.5 million raised at the auction in 2012.
