Each year our school has a couple of childfree fundraisers, we were talking this morning about options for next year.  The leader at the moment is a cocktail night.  

Previously we have had:

Melbourne Cup Calcutta Night
Trivia Night (people are getting sick of this)
Band night (this was a sell out, but has been done the last two years in a row).

So, what does your school do?  Anything that is particularly popular or a good money spinner?

Our school always has an adults only disco original.gif  BYO drinks, usually with a theme, this year was Casino Royale I think

We also had a winter ball this year as a major fundraiser. Very big deal, 3 course meal with entertainment and dancing.

Another year we had a "girls night out" - 3 course meal, function room with all the local party plan people in attendance (scrapbooking, candles, chocolates, lingerie etc).  Raffles, hairdressing makeover on the night. Really great night.

Trivia night is every couple of years.

Our school has a "Ladies Night In".
The P and F invites small businesses or whoever to buy a stall for the night and they sell their wares.
Also there was a stall giving mini manicures for $5 and shoulder and neck massages for $5.
There was wine and nibblies.
Can't remember what else, but it did make quite a bit of money.  

We also made LOTS of money on a coach shopping trip in July, this was also strictly no kids.
