Default PHP MySQL form error

I have a form set up to show events and when an admin is logged it it gives him the option to delete an event. Whenever i hit the delete form for some reason its not reading the whole event title. i have the events set up in a MySQL database and am echoing out the events. here is my code:

PHP Code:

include_once "connect_to_mysql.php";
$data mysql_query("SELECT * FROM calendar ORDER BY year, month, date DESC") or die(mysql_error()); 
$info mysql_fetch_array$data ))
$month ereg_replace("[^A-Za-z]"""$info['month']); // filter out numbers
$endmonth ereg_replace("[^A-Za-z]"""$info['endmonth']); // filter out numbers 
echo  "<form action='' method='post' enctype='multipart/form-data' name='form' id='form' onsubmit='return validate_form ( );'>
                           <td width='300' valign='top' style='padding-right:10px;'>" 
.$month", " .$info['date']. 
"&nbsp;" .$info['year']. " &mdash; " .$endmonth",&nbsp;" .$info['enddate']. "&nbsp;" .$info['endyear']. "</td>
                            <td width='440' style='padding-left:10px;' valign='top' >
                                <font size='+1' color='#179ceb'><strong>" 
.$info['event']. "</strong></font><br />" .$info['description']. "</td>
                            <td><select name='deleteevent'><option value=''><option value='delete'>delete event</select><br /><br />
                                <font size='-1' color='red'>*WARNING:<br /></font>
                                <font size='-4' color='red'>Delete action can NOT be undone.</font>
                                <input name='event2' type='hidden' id='event2' value=" 
.$info['event']. "/>
                                <input type='submit' name='delete' id='delete' value='Delete Event' />
                        </form><br /><hr />"
PHP Code:

if (array_key_exists('delete'$_POST)) {
$event2 $_POST['event2'];
$delete $_POST['deleteevent'];
$sql mysql_query("SELECT * FROM calendar"); 
$row mysql_fetch_array($sql)){

    if (
$delete == "delete") {

$sql mysql_query("DELETE FROM calendar WHERE event='$event2'"); 
$successmsg '<div style=\'padding:10px; background-color:#333;\'><center><font color=\'#fff\'>The event "' .$event2'" has been deleted</font></center></div>
                       <br /><br />'
    } else if (
$delete == "") {
$successmsg '<div style=\'padding:10px; background-color:#333;\'><center><font color=\'#fff\'>Please select and event to be deleted</font></center></div>
                       <br /><br />'


something happens from when i hit the delete user button to when it reads the form where it shows only the first word of the event title.

thank you for any help!
