A couple talk outdoors

RACA’s largest annual event, FireFly Fling is an entertaining evening of food, music, and art. All proceeds from FireFly Fling further our mission of enriching the creative life of our community through the arts.

Dear Firefly Fling Supporters,

Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, it is with heavy hearts that we announce the cancellation of Firefly Fling 2020.  This decision has not been made lightly; however, public health and safety must be our number one priority.

What to do about your ticket purchase(s)…

Firefly Fling is our largest fundraiser each year, and it provides critical funding for local arts, artists and schools. Also, many organizations and events throughout the year depend on the grants we provide. As you can imagine, it takes several months of planning and resources to produce these events as a way for RACA to raise funds for our mission. We ask that you consider converting your ticket purchase(s) or sponsorship into a 100% tax-deductible donation to Rome Area Council for the Arts for which you will receive a formal acknowledgment of your gift. If this is not a viable option for you, please contact us to arrange a refund.



Again, please know how much we value your support of Firefly Fling and of RACA and regret the inconvenience this will cause. We feel, however, that suspension of this event is the only responsible course of action in these most unusual circumstances.

We hope that you and yours stay safe and healthy as we all navigate through this difficult time.
