	ini_set('SMTP', 'SMTPREMOVED');
	$to = $to_address.",".$to_auth_address;
	if($type == "half"){
		$subject = "Holiday add Half Day - ".$to_name;
		$subject = "Holiday add - ".$to_name;
     //Need to add in the requestors name
		$subject = "Holiday remove - ".$to_name; //Need to add in the requestors name
	$organizer          = 'EMAILREMOVED';
    $organizer_email    = 'EMAILREMOVED';
    $location           = "Out Of Office";
    $date               = date("Ymd",strtotime($startTime));
    $startTime          = '0000';
    $endTime            = '2359';
    //$subject            = 'Millennium Falcon';
    $desc               = 'Holiday';
	$from  = "EMAILREMOVED";
	$headers = "From: $from\r\nReply-To: $from"; 
	$headers .= "\r\nMIME-version: 1.0\r\nContent-Type: text/calendar; name=calendar.ics; method=REQUEST; charset=\"iso-8859-1\"";
	$headers .= "\r\nContent-Transfer-Encoding: 7bit\r\nX-Mailer: Microsoft Office Outlook 12.0"; 
    $message = "BEGIN:VCALENDAR\r\n";
    $message .= "VERSION:2.0\r\n";
    $message .= "PRODID:-//Deathstar-mailer//theforce/NONSGML v1.0//EN\r\n";

Try this
$message .= "DTSTART;VALUE=DATE:{$date}\r\n";
$message .= "DTEND;VALUE=DATE:{$date}\r\n";

According to the docs if you specify the type of the DTSTART as a date and leave out the End Date with Start Date being a date only (no time) then it will load as an all day event.
