By Cheril Lee
Omaha, NE – Warren Buffett is the special guest for Girls Inc.'s 10th annual Lunch for the Girls.
Executive Director Roberta Wilhelm says the luncheon takes place at 11:30 on Monday, November 14th in the Century Link Center.
Buffett will be interviewed by CNBC's Becky Quick and will also answer questions submitted by the audience. Wilhelm says Buffett's presentation complements Girls Inc.'s economic literacy program. She says she's excited for Buffett to share his financial expertise with the audience.
"I've heard him speak before and he's a great speaker. He's funny and he speaks in a way that a lay person can understand. Certainly business people would be interested in it. I think it appeals to a broad audience."
Reservations are available online at girlsincomaha.com. The mission of Girls Inc. is to inspire girls to be "strong, smart and bold."
