Australian prime minister, Tony Abbott was again involved in an extremely expensive breakfast at the 2010 Brisbane Produce Markets Charity Auction. This tray of first-harvest mangoes auctioned for $41,000 in Australian currency ($38,400 USD). Sam Coco was the proud winner of the fruits, but instead of keeping them for himself, he donated the mangoes to the Mater Children’s Hospital, in South Brisbane.
Many child patients must have gotten an expensive slice of mango in their breakfasts the next day. In addition to donating the actual mangoes to the children’s hospital, the winnings from the auction went to benefit charities like Diabetes Queensland and Life Education Queensland. After the auction, Sam Coco was appropriately dubbed the “Mango King.”
