Pharrell Williams had plenty to celebrate on Oscar night. In addition to a high-energy, candy-colored performance that rocked the house, he raised more than $44,000 for his educational nonprofit by selling off his famous giant brown Grammy hat .
After putting the Grammy hat up for auction on eBay last month, the winning bid was submitted by an unlikely party.
Thank you to whoever bought my Grammy hat on @eBay for $44,100. Your donation benefits From One Hand To AnOTHER. 🙏— Pharrell Williams (@Pharrell) March 3, 2014
Completing the mini-meme about how Skateboard P's 10-gallon wonder looked a lot like their official logo, roast beef sandwich chain Arby's announced that it had snatched up the "Mountain" hat for $44,100.
"@Pharrell You're welcome," Arby's announced on Twitter. "We're HAPPY to support a great cause & get our hat back."
The proceeds will go to Pharrell's educational nonprofit From One Hand to Another.
