There are so many exciting events that take place in and around Avon Schools, most of which are open to the public. From football games to theater, from band competitions to tennis matches, and from orchestra concerts to swim meets, there’s always something to attend.
Read on to learn about the benefits, if you qualify, and how to enroll.
Who Can Participate
Any Avon-Washington Township resident age 65 or older can get their very own Avon Gold Card.
The Gold Card is a great idea for people who:
- have grandkids who participate in school arts or athletics,
- are AHS alumni who still enjoy seeing the Orioles in action, or
- who just want to enjoy a night out at a performance, concert, or play.
How It Works
The Gold Card provides free admission to home athletic competitions and performing arts events at all 12 Avon schools. For admission to athletic events, Gold Card holders simply need to show their card at the gate.
Card holders should call ahead when planning to attend performing arts events so event organizers can reserve seats and set aside tickets at will call.
There's no need to renew your Gold Card. It remains valid as long as you live in Avon or Washington Township.
How To Participate
If you would like to get a Gold Card, call the Avon Schools Administration Center at (317) 544-6000 or stop in during business hours. During the school year, we are open Monday through Friday, 7:30 am to 3:30 pm. We keep shortened hours during breaks.
The Administration Center is located at 7203 East US Highway 36 in Avon.
Disclaimer: The Gold Card is not valid for admissions to away events, IHSAA playoffs, ISSMA, IPA, WGI, or IHSCGA competition events. Some events may limit Gold Card usage to a specific performance. Event listings are available on our district and school websites. The Gold Card is non transferrable.
We have four grandkids in the Avon Community School Corporation. A friend told me about the program so I stopped in and got the Gold Card right away. I have already used it. It is a great way to participate with them in their interests. I can show my support by being present. Thank you for this opportunity!
