If the price of the Canon C100 is your budget, then you’re in a good neighborhood.
The C100 is a great cinema camera, but I would not consider a cinema camera a good option for event work. The depth-of-field is an asset for certain types of work, but is a detriment for event work. Look at the JVC GY-HM850C here http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1042868-REG/jvc_gyhm850c14_1_3_prohd_shoulder.html. It uses a detachable ENG style lens and the 14X zoom is plenty for just about any event.
