Money from the sale of his infamous hat will go towards charity.
Singer and producer Pharrell Williams’ oversized Vivienne Westwood-designed “Buffalo Hat” was one of the top talking points of the recent Grammy awards. Now fans are getting the chance to own a piece of musical history by bidding for the hat in a charity auction via eBay.
All the money from the sale will go towards Pharrell’s From One Hand To Another non-profit organisation which helps disadvantaged kids access education. “Our organisation, From One Hand To Another, is committed to bringing kids experiences that ignite their passions, challenge their minds and prepare them for success,” he explained in a statement.
The hat, which started with an opening price of US$200 (RM640), has already received 64 bids, and the current asking price stands at US$10,500 (RM33,600). The auction closes March 2. Check out the auction page at www.ebay.com/PharrellsHat. — AFP Relaxnews
