    Populate ComboBox from db, Select RecordID

    I can populate the drop down list no problem. What I want to do is save the selected data into another table which is related via foreign key. So I want the list to show the text description(Name) but when it is selected I want the EventID to be saved.
            SqlConnection conn = new SqlConnection(@"
                    server = .\sqlexpress;
                    integrated security = true;
                    database = HoopDataSample");
            string qryEvents = @"select EventID,Name from Events order by Name";
                    //****Get Event Info to Fill Event Combo Box
                    SqlCommand cmd = new SqlCommand(qryEvents, conn);
                    SqlDataReader rdr = cmd.ExecuteReader();
                    while (rdr.Read())
                        comboBoxEvents.Items.Add(rdr[1]);  //rdr[0] is the EventID,rdr[1] is the Name
