Do you have any reason for wanting a better sentence? Do these sound wrong to you or did someone say the don't sound right? –  Mitch Feb 28 '12 at 0:55

Both of those sentences are incorrect, I would say something like this:

Please check with the organizer for information regarding the opening time.

Or maybe this:

Please contact the organizer for details regarding the opening time.

In a transform of the sentences you have to ones with the correct syntax, use:

Please check with the organizer when the opening of this event is.

or

Please check when the opening of this event is from the organizer.

where the first option is slightly more felicitous.
