    It also depends on everyone knowing which event you mean- it might be better to name the event. In a busy city with many events every day, it might not work.

    Which one below is correct in the sentence ?

    "If anyone find" or "if anyone found" or "if anyone has found" or "if anyone is found"

    Re: lost property

    I would use either "If anyone finds it, ..." or "If anyone has found it, ..."

    If you are emailing the people in charge of lost property at the event in question, it's OK to use "at the event".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
