SAN FRANCISCO (AP) _ Shoes donated by Bette Midler, Bridget Fonda and Laurence Fishburne are being auctioned on the Internet to benefit the homeless.

San Francisco-based Zappos.com, an Internet-only shoe store, is conducting the auction to benefit the St. Anthony Foundation.

Brook Schaaf of Zappos said the auction, which ends Sept. 15, may generate ``from $500 to the sky is the limit.″

Fonda’s burgundy high-heels are from 1992′s ``Single White Female.″ Midler donated black pumps from last year’s ``Isn’t She Great.″ Fishburne contributed sneakers he wore while training for a sequel to the 1999 hit movie ``The Matrix.″
