Erik Sauer was Harford's Most Beautiful Person for 2013. Nominations are being sought for this year's most beautiful people. (August 24, 2014)

Each year Harford County conducts a search for local "unsung heroes" who selflessly assist those around them. They are volunteers of any age whose acts of goodwill have previously gone unnoticed. These "beautiful people" volunteer above and beyond, donating their time and talent to make a difference in Harford County.

Nominations for Harford's Most Beautiful People 2014 volunteer awards are being accepted for the Annual Harford's Most Beautiful People. They are do by Friday, Aug. 29. Anyone who knows someone who continuously contributes their time and talent to enhance the quality of life and community spirit in Harford County, is asked to send in a nomination form so they can be honored at the Harford's Most Beautiful People awards presentation on Thursday, Oct. 2, 6 to 9 p.m., at the Bel Air Church of the Nazarene.

Last year, 35 nominees were recognized before Erik Sauer, a leukemia survivor who established the There Goes My Hero Foundation. The mission of the foundation is to restore hope to leukemia patients and their families; it provides meals, holds bone marrow drives, fundraisers and other events.
