Billionaire Warren Buffett will again auction off a private lunch to hopefully raise millions for a California homeless charity.

The annual auction to benefit the Glide Foundation, which provides social services to the poor and homeless in San Francisco, was announced Wednesday.

Last year's winner paid $3,456,789 to dine with Buffett. The winning bids have topped $2 million for the past five years.

Bidding for the lunch on eBay will begin on June 2 and continue through June 7.

Buffett is chairman and CEO of Omaha, Neb.-based Berkshire Hathaway and a prominent philanthropist. He says he doesn't think anyone is better at providing help than Glide.

The winner can invite up to seven friends to join the lunch at Smith & Wollensky steakhouse in New York City.
