how to put the text in the middle and little bigger

I have this stylesheet code

.event .title & .event .date write text in a blue box
but the problem is that text shows up top aligned, but i need it to centered

Also the text is not clearly visible, what text or text size should I use to make it clearer
Thanks

------------------------------------------
.event {
      border: 0px
      padding: 5px ;
    width: 500px ;
   }

.event .title {
    width: 50% ;
      height: 20px;
      background-color: #52769A ;
      font-size: 10px;
      color: #FFFFFF;
      margin-bottom:0px;
   
    float: left ;
   }

.event .date {
    width: 50% ;
      height: 20px;
    background-color: #52769A ;
    text-align: right ;
    float: right ;
      font-size: 10px;
      color: #FFFFFF;
      margin-bottom:0px;
   }

for that you use vertical-align: middle;
also, if you use this in the html code itself, it's <td valign="middle">

To change the font size, change the "100%" in "font-size: 100%;" to some other value.
