Salvation Army auctions Dali works
A Houston Salvation Army thrift store is auctioning off some unusual donations -- Salvador Dali originals given by an anonymous donor.
Assistant store Supervisor Carl Roberts said a wealthy Houston woman donated the pieces, including a bronze crucifix, a drawing of Don Quixote and several prints, with the only condition being the money must go to the Salvation Army's adult rehabilitation center, KTRK-TV, Houston, reported Thursday.
The Salvation Army store said the works have gathered bids of thousands of dollars. The auction will close at the end of August.
