Last week we introduced what is now my favorite contest, Hot Heroes of the Hudson Valley.

We've seen an overload of good looking  Emergency Service workers around the US after Hurricane Irma and Harvey. It was a lighthearted way to get our minds off the seriousness of the situation.

We didn't want to forget about our local Hudson Valley Heroes and we know we have a lot of hard working, dedicated, beautiful heroes right here in our hometowns and we want to shine the light on them.

Here are a few that sent us their pictures:

If you would like to nominate yourself or someone you know as a Hot Hudson Valley Hero send us your picture through the app or to Jess@Hudsonvalleycountry.com before October 6th. We'll be picking a winner at random for a $50 dinner gift card.

Our friends in Florida, Texas and now Puerto Rico will need help for the next few months trying to rebuild. If you can reach out to RedCross.Org to see how you can donate.
