Everyday Giving Blog: Are Charity Special Events A Waste Of Money?: "The report did not sit well with others who questioned the message of the study. I was happy to discover Peter Panepento from The Chronicle of Philanthropy researched the claims and found a different story. The article, Critics Dispute Claim That Charities Lose Money on Special Events at http://www.philanthropy.com/free/update/2007/05/2007051002.htm documents his findings. The Association of Fundraising Professionals also commented on the issue at http://www.afpnet.org/ka/ka-3.cfm?content_item_id=24074&folder_id=2345."
