Here's some code to get the information you describe into a drop-down select box, I've assumed you're using mysql but if not you should be able to adapt it quite easily

<?php

echo("<select name=\"event_list\"><option>\n");

// do your mysql connecting stuff
$resultset = mysql_query("select * from event") or die(mysql_error());
while($event = mysql_fetch_array($resultset))
{
  echo("<option value=\"".$event['event_id']."\">".$event['nameofevent']."\n");
}
echo("</select>\n");

?>

Does that give you what you need?  Post back if I can help further!
