What's a good way for an eighth grade class to raise money?

We're trying to start a fundraiser at my school, and I'm trying to think of some good ways to start raising money.

Try fundraising through a sales event by obtaining at a reasonable price a large amount of something in high demand that is unavailable locally. For example, in my town there is not a great doughnut shop. People here love Krispy Kreme doughnuts though and the nearest one is two hours away.

To raise money, local kids will travel the two hours, buy a LOT of the doughnuts and then sell them for a day to make profit. Do your math carefully though, whatever you do. Something like that will require an investment and you want to make sure you'll get your money back.

Apparently, a ton of people pay to play in Magic the Gathering, so you can hold a tournament. Otherwise, for the non-nerds, dances.

Get the girls and do a sexy car wash fundraiser. That's what my school did.

Car wash, bake sale, small fair with just food and games or crafts show. You can call local donut shops to see if the will donate their leftover donuts and treats. Some may be willing if you tell them you will post sign showing who donated. We had muffin and punch sales at school. Each 8th grader would bring a dozen of muffins and some punch. Then you set it up at end of day where each at your school pays .50 cents for a muffin and cup of punch.
