“Winning the charity lunch with Guy was an incredible experience and a far better deal than he humbly advertises. I won the lunch auction with Guy right before the world fell into the pandemic and the Aquamarine team, especially Guy’s assistant Chantal, reached out to me and followed up with me quarter after quarter to make sure that our charity lunch happened. Before we even had our lunch scheduled Guy and I jumped on a zoom call and chatted, and it was a blast. After a bit more than two years we met in Chicago for lunch and ended up going to dinner as well. Guy was generous with his time, attention, experience, and wisdom and I walked away with a lot of insight and wisdom. Then Guy, Chantal, and the entire Aquamarine team was kind enough to invite me to tag along to the Berkshire investor dinner for his fund and I met a group of wonderful people there who made the Berkshire meeting feel very familiar and inviting. The charity auction lunch is an incredible value for a good cause. Thank you again to Guy, Chantal, and the Aquamarine team for the wonderful experience.” – Edgar Martinez
“The charity lunch with Guy was a wonderful experience! It was an amazing opportunity me and my wife to learn some great insights and life lessons, and Guy was focused on delivering immense value for us. And, a couple of years after the lunch, Guy helped arrange for me to meet Mohnish Pabrai during his visit to Kenya. Guy’s generosity was, and continues to be, way beyond what both Guki and I expected. You arranging for us to meet with Mohnish Pabrai is a testament to this.” – Sanjeet Thethy
