Purchase of racing-themed bag benefits charities
If you love watching race cars zip around a track, supporting a charitable cause and, um, splurging, this promotion could be for you.
Zych Handbags, which makes purses and clutches featuring the black-and-white checkered flag waved at the finish line, will donate 25 percent of its profits to two child-centric groups through the Honda Grand Prix of St. Petersburg on March 24.
Proceeds will benefit Big Brothers Big Sisters of Pinellas County, which serves Pinellas, Hernando and Citrus counties, and the Graham Rahal Foundation, which was founded by 2008 Prix winner Graham Rahal to help sick kids.
Founder Tracy Zych is a Florida native, and her company is based in Ocala.
You can peruse and purchase her collection of racing-themed bags here. This isn't a purchase for the thrifty at heart: The bags run $225 to $450.
Fashionable fans of motorsports, what do you think of the designs -- and the gesture?
