Event is a mechanism by which a class can send notification to its client. For example, you have an application to perform certain operation, if an operation is failed then the application send the notification to log file, printer, fax, email etc. Events are declared using delegates. Without delegate, we can not create Events.

A delegate object doesn't care about the class in which the function exists. There is only one restriction that the delegate signature and the function signature should be same otherwise delegate object can’t hold the reference of the method which doesn't have the same signature. Signature means return type and parameters.
