Creative fundraising

Jewish schools are apparently having to go to wilder and wilder lengths to fundraise. Not so long ago we had a school in California auctioning off a house. Now, Yeshiva Flatbush is raffling off a slightly less attractive, but equally inventive prize of 3 million air miles. The opportunity to "visit your mother in law in California every year for the next 120 years" (is this necessarily a prize?) starts at $250 a ticket.
Here's a suggestion for the next school that needs a fundraiser. Why don't they raffle off free tuition for life for an entire family? I'm sure a lot of parents would be willing to pay $250 for that.

Because the parents aren't the ones who can afford raffle tickets!
