Pharrell Williams is having a hat sale

For a minimal bid of $10,500, you too could possibly rock that Dudley Do-Right look. Pharrell Williams, the ‘Happy’ Academy Award nominated singer/producer is selling his now famous chapeau, which kept his name trending for miles after wearing it to the Grammys. Williams added that proceeds from the sale would be donated to charity, namely From One Hand to Another whose mission is to help at-risk youth realize their potential. The children will be given the tools and resources need and nurtured by learning new technologies, arts, media and motivation.

On February 20, Williams tweeted, “I’m auctioning off my hat from the Grammys to benefit From One Hand to Another. Hey @Arbys, you want my hat? Now’s your chance,” he added jokingly. The auction will be closed on March 2.

The married father of a young son is a huge ‘Star Trek’ fan, a skateboarder with a half-pipe inside his home and is building a $35 million after-school center in his hometown.

Viviene Westwood’s “mountain hat” nearly stole the show (Grammy Awards) which was held on Sunday, January 26. In fact, the hat has its own Twitter account - @Pharrellhat.

The 40-year old Williams whose hometown is Virginia Beach, VA, has found himself riding high in the saddle these days. Not only is his song ‘Happy,’ from the animated film ‘Despicable Me 2’ nominated for a 2014 Oscar for Best Original Song, Williams also helped create two of 2013’s biggest pop hits: Robin Thicke’s ‘Blurred Lines’ and Daft Punk’s ‘Get Lucky.’

Lots to be happy about indeed.
