    MacRumors reports that Apple CEO Tim Cook’s third annual CharityBuzz auction has finished today, having earned a whopping $200,000 for the Robert F. Kennedy Center for Justice and Human Rights.

    The auction had over 20 bids for the special prize, which includes a 1-hour lunch date with Tim Cook at Apple’s headquarters in Cupertino for the winner and a friend, as well as two VIP passes to an Apple keynote event where Apple unveils new products.

    While this is still a huge amount of money, MacRumors notes that it is actually less than was raised at previous auctions, with the first auction for a coffee date with Cook back in 2013 earning $610,000.

    The chosen charity, the RFK Center for Justice and Human Rights, has been the beneficiary of the auction for the past three years. It pledges to bring about “a just and peaceful world by partnering with human rights leaders, teaching social justice, and advancing corporate responsibility.”
