DUBAI, United Arab Emirates — One pricey burger recently sold during a charity auction in the United Arab Emirates.

It went for $10,000.

The founder of Dubai lifestyle magazine Villa 88 phoned in the winning bid.

The giant burger contained seven beef patties — one for each of the emirates in the United Arab Emirates.

It also had aged cheddar cheese and veal bacon strips in a saffron brioche bun.

The burger was prepared by the culinary director at Le Gourmet — and by a member of Qatar’s royal family.

All proceeds went to breast cancer awareness and free early detection.
