Milton volunteer Sharon Lockwood, a founding member of the Better Together: Real Communities - Milton Mini-Grants Initiative and former member of the Milton Disability Awareness Committee (MDAC), will be honored by Senior Services North Fulton (SSNF) Feb. 16 at the nonprofit's "Heart and Soul" yearly fundraiser.

"Sharon is a passionate advocate for seniors and individuals with disabilities," said Carrie Bellware, executive director of SSNF. "It is a pleasure to honor such a special woman and North Fulton resident."

If the name sounds familiar, it's because Sharon is the mother of Milton Mayor Joe Lockwood. He said he couldn't be more proud of her work.

"She is an inspiration to everyone who meets her, and she just keeps on going, always with a smile," he said.

The fundraiser will be held at the Atlanta Athletic Club in Johns Creek. Event attendees will be treated to a champagne reception, formal dinner and dancing to the live music of "Platinum."

Individual admission is $100. A reserved table for 10 guests is $950. To make reservations call 770-993-1906 or go online at
