Ask a few local restaurants to sponsor your school fundraiser. If they provide the food for the students, you can promote their restaurants to the parents. Sell dinner and movie tickets, or dinner and theater tickets to the parents for their night out on the town.
The parents will have a fun date night knowing that their children are safe... and that their kids are having a great evening too.
