OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — Billionaire Warren Buffett is auctioning off an all-you-eat tour of the See’s Candy factory in California to benefit an education nonprofit in Los Angeles.

Bidding had already reached $30,000 by Monday, but it remains to be seen whether the final price of this auction will rival the annual auction of lunch with Buffett which routinely tops $1 million.

The online auction that runs through Aug. 13 will benefit Communities In Schools of Los Angeles.

Buffett says he’ll teach the auction winner the proper way to eat a bonbon during the half-day tour. Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway conglomerate has owned See’s Candy since 1972.

Buffett did not immediately respond to questions about the auction Monday.
