The Clinton Foundation has auctioned off a “once-in-a-lifetime opportunity” to sit down for a private lunch with Bill and Hillary Rodham Clinton for more than $300,000.

Charitybuzz, the website where the auction was held, would not disclose how much the lunch was actually sold for, but a report by the Daily Caller published less than three hours before the auction’s close showed the bidding war had reached at least $305,000 by a bidder named “moatistheke.”

The price exceeds the foundation’s goal of $250,000.

“Bid now on this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to have a private lunch with President Bill Clinton and Secretary Hillary Rodham Clinton at the Clinton Foundation’s headquarters in New York City,” the description of the auction item read.

The lunch is valid for 2 people and is expected to last between 45 minutes and one hour. Unfortunately, even with a $300,000 price tag, the auction winner will be responsible for his or her own transportation to and from the lunch, which “may take up to 1 year to schedule based on availability.”
