Most certainly it is incorrect 'to apologise an event'! 'Apologise' is an intransitive verb, and if there is one tendency I loathe it is the cavalier manner in which the intransitives of the English language are being bowdlerised into transitive form. Lawyers nowadays 'appeal' a decision of the court when hitherto they 'appealed against' such.
Passives become actives and vice versa. When you hear of someone 'interviewing for jobs' you are never sure whether they are the interviewers or the ones being interviewed.
All this is about as bad as the unrestrained use of nouns as verbs. 'Our athlete is expected to medal'. What bastardised English, if you can call it that!
