Kiwi Syslog has the feature "...Log Forwarder for Windows converts Windows Event Logs into syslog messages...".
There's a free version too.

I suggest you look at Splunk as it can act as a syslog.  Splunk has light forwarder that you install on Windows server and it will forward it to a central Splunk server.  Unlike syslog which utilizes UDP, Splunk utilizes TCP which means that in an event of connectivity failure, you will not lose any events that occurred during the outage.  Also note that Splunk does great Windows log management natively.
