Notes to answerer
Asker: pass the hat to ask a group of people to give money. Our group has tried passing the hat, and they've had auctions and done various things to raise funds. Usage notes: usually said about money that is given to help pay for something or to reward someone Etymology: based on the literal meaning of passing a hat (= asking people to put money in a hat that is handed from one person to another)
