how much should i charge to baby-sit one of my daycare kids for an evening?

she would be coming to my house (well, more accurately, staying at my house) and will be here for 5 hours. my daycare rate is $30/day (she's usually here for about 9 hours), but i feel that i should ask for more than $3/hour for the evening gig (we'd be feeding her an extra meal, and cutting into our family time, etc). i know the going rate for sitters in our area is about $10/hour, but i do consider this family to be low-level friends so i don't really want to charge them that much.

i was thinking some sort of flat rate, but i don't know how much would be too much.
