(USA TODAY) -- Fast-food chain Arby's bought Pharrell Williams' oversized Vivienne Westwood hat that he wore to the Grammys for $44,100 on eBay.

The money is going to From One Hand to Another, a charity that helps children learn through technology and the arts.

Williams' hat — which has its own Twitter account at @PharrellsHat — resembles the hat in Arby's logo.

During the Jan. 26 music awards show, Arby tweeted at Williams, "Can we have our hat back?"

In a tweet on Sunday, Arby said, "We're HAPPY to support a great cause & get our hat back," referring to Williams' hit song Happy.

Twitter users commented that Williams did not show up wearing the hat for the Academy Awards, although he did get comments via social media about his tuxedo shorts. (The shorts also have their own Twitter account at @PharrellsShorts.)

Williams donned a hat similar to the one he wore at the Grammys during his performance at the Oscars. At one point during the song, Williams — and his hat — got off stage and danced with the stars sitting in the front row.

But the infamous hat DID make a reprisal Sunday night when host Ellen DeGeneres used it to collect money from the stars for pizza she had ordered during the awards show.
