You can do this through terminal.
The creation date is stored within the file/directory metadata.
You can always drag the file to your desktop for easy access, and physical drag it to the terminal to complete the file path.
If you want to change the creation date manually via terminal, you can use
touch -t (space + new date format + drag file here)
This will set both the creation and modification dates to the same date, but you can then change the modification date alone via
touch -t 201012160102.03 /path/to/file
The above example changes the creation and modification dates of /path/to/file to +December 16th, 2010 at 1:02:03am+ .

There is nothing wrong with the OS X Created or Modified dates. The issue is with the date
embedded in the photo for when it was take.
I ran the iPhoto Adjust date on he picture listed in the last import. It let me change the date
from 2007 to 2011 but it still shows up in Photos as 2007

Any solution to aRKAY's problem? I have the same dilemma. I did a batch edit (including modify originals) to all photos for a specific event and the date range next to the name of the event won't change (even after exiting and restarting iPhoto).

I've been struggling with this for a while but just figured out a fix.
First make sure the photos (in the event, even though the event appears at the wrong date/time) have the correct dates & times, change them if need be using "Photos-Adjust date & time" or "Photos - batch change".
Once the dates for the individual photos are correct,
- select the photos you want to appear in the new & correct event,
- export them to a completely new/separate folder,
- go back to iphoto a import those same newly exported photos back into iPhoto.
They should now appear in their own event which appears in order at the correct time & date.
Worked for me.
