Go on an "all-you-can-eat" tour of See's Candy Factory in Los Angeles plus a meet & greet with business magnate, investor, and philanthropist Warren Buffett! Before or after your tour, Mr. Buffett will demonstrate the only acceptable way to eat a bonbon.

This item is subject to Mr. Buffett's Los Angeles travel schedule.

Warren Buffett is widely considered the most successful investor of the 20th century. Buffett is the primary shareholder, chairman and CEO of Berkshire Hathaway and consistently ranked among the world's wealthiest people. He was ranked as the world's wealthiest person in 2008 and as the third wealthiest person in 2011. In 2012, Time magazine named Buffett one of the most influential people in the world.

Buffett is called the "Wizard of Omaha", "Oracle of Omaha", or the "Sage of Omaha" and is noted for his adherence to the value investing philosophy. Buffett is also a notable philanthropist, having pledged to give away 99 percent of his fortune to philanthropic causes.

In 1972, the See's family sold the company to Berkshire Hathaway Inc., presided over by Chairman Warren Buffett and Vice Chairman Charles Munger. Utilizing his philosophy of acquiring solid companies where he could follow his "hands off" policy, Warren Buffett installed Charles N. Huggins as President and CEO. Charles Huggins dedicated himself to the continuance of the company he joined in 1951, guiding it with the old-fashioned values set by Charles See until his retirement at the end of 2005.
Donated by: Warren Buffett
