This past weekend, the Harbor Village shops at Pillar Point Harbor held their 2nd annual Easter Celebration and Charity Fundraiser, titled "Hop for a Cause." Most businesses provided extra service and pledged to donate a portion of sales to selected charities. Organizers hoped to raise awareness for both the charities and Harbor Village throughout the community.
