NEW YORK, May 28 /PRNewswire/ -- Electrolux, Europe's leading premium appliance brand, and Kelly Ripa have teamed up for a charity auction featuring a stylish collection of designer handbags from Ripa's personal collection. All proceeds will go to help fight ovarian cancer. The bags were featured in "Kelly's Bags," a fun, first-of-its-kind online game that captured the imaginations of 40,000+ women this spring while helping to raise funds for The Ovarian Cancer Research Fund.

The auction features items from Kelly's Bags -- donated by some of today's hottest handbag designers including Elliott Lucca, Gustto, Lucy's Luxuries, Kara James, Cate Adair, LaCroix Designs -- and will be live on eBay until 5pm EDT on Friday, June 6.

A Cate Adair "Viola" black clutch, which Ripa wore for her recent "Late Show with David Letterman" appearance, is among 16 other bags being auctioned, including this season's most talked about bag, the Gustto "Crocetta."

All proceeds from this handbag charity auction will benefit The Ovarian Cancer Research Fund.

Ripa had this to say about the benefit auction: "Ovarian cancer affects thousands of women and their families each year. I am proud to team up with Electrolux to support The Ovarian Cancer Research Fund. Together, we're committed to raising $500,000 over the next two years to help fund research to fight ovarian cancer."
