(AllHipHop News) Pharrell did not take home the Oscar for Best Original Song, however his presence (and hat) was felt. Last night (March 2nd), Pharrell performed the #1 song in the country, “Happy” and finally sold his infamous Grammy’s hat on eBay to a well known buyer.
During the live telecast, Pharrell tweeted from his personal Twitter account that his Vivienne Westwood hat that he wore to this year’s Grammy awards had been purchased on eBay. Today (March 3rd), a tweet from the official Twitter for Arby’s claimed the sandwich shop were the ones who purchased the hat:

The $44,100 of proceeds will go to Pharrell’s charity From One Hand To Another which provides learning programs to “underserved youth” from ages 7 to 20 according to the charity’s official website.
Besides raising over $44,000 for charity by wearing a hat, Pharrell got the usually stoic Oscar crowd to liven up during his performance of “Happy”. With American Hustle‘s Amy Adams,. Meryl Streep and Best Supporting Actress winner Lupita Nyong’o dancing with the 40 years old musical genius, Pharrell’s “Happy” performance was the highlight of the night.
