    Smile grammar with THERE

    Hello again,
    warm and friendly greeting from Tashkent, Uzbekistan

    The more I click on this site, the more interested I become
    I would once more like convey my ever deepest thanks to those who run this site, who help us as moderators, and who just assist us as friends.

    My question:
    Is this sentence, i.e. its structure to be more precise, correct in English:

    There have recently been organized an event devoted to alcoholism.
    There is appeared a problem you don't wish to hear.
