I had the same problem. In my case, the original event had been deleted from iPhoto on my Macbook Pro.
1. I physically attached my iPad to my Macbook Pro.
2. In iPhoto, I selected one photograph and made it into a new event using the exact title of the event on the iPad.
3. I switched to the iTunes application on my Macbook Pro. Under Photos I selected the check boxes to sync photos on the laptop with the iPad, to sync selected photos and under Events, I selected the new event I just created. I applied the changes and performed a sync. At this point, the event on the iPad went from having over 300 photos to just one.
4. Back on the Macbook Pro, under iTunes, I deselcted the box that would sync the iPad with any photos on the laptop. I was prompted whether I wanted to remove the previously synced photos and I indicated I did. I ran another sync and the event was now completely gone from my iPad.
Hope this works for you too.

I think I did something very similar but not knowing just what I did, but I got rid of it. I'm definitely a senior citizen when it comes to syncing and iCloud. If I have the problem again I will come back to your advice above. Thanks,
