PFObject from Selected Row and Saving to Another Parse Class

I am still new to programming and I am trying to create a button that will save the currentUser and the EventID of a PFObject. I have a class in Parse called Users Attendance that relates the User with the EventID to keep track of all the events a user says they will attend. I am having trouble setting up the UIButton to save the EventID from the PFObject that is on the row selected it from the TableView. Could someone please help?

Here is the TableView setup:

override func tableView(tableView: UITableView, cellForRowAtIndexPath indexPath: NSIndexPath, object: PFObject!) -> PFTableViewCell {

    var cell = tableView.dequeueReusableCellWithIdentifier("Cell") as! EventsTableViewCell!
    if cell == nil {
        cell = EventsTableViewCell(style: UITableViewCellStyle.Default, reuseIdentifier: "Cell")
    cell.attend.tag = indexPath.row
    cell.attend.addTarget(self, action: "attendingEvent:", forControlEvents: UIControlEvents.TouchUpInside)

    // Extract values from the PFObject to display in the table cell

    if let eventTime = object?["EventTime"] as? String {
    cell.EventTime.text = eventTime

    if let eventName = object?["EventName"] as? String {
        cell.EventName.text = eventName

    var initialImage = UIImage(named: "DidNotLoad")
    cell.EventImage.image = initialImage
    if let parseEventPhoto = object?["EventImage"] as? PFFile{
        cell.EventImage.file = parseEventPhoto
    return cell

Here is the UIButton I attempted to create:

func attendingEvent(sender: UIButton) {

    println("You tapped the button!")

    let currentUser = PFUser.currentUser()
    var getSenderInfo = sender.tag
    var selectedRowInfo = self.tableView.indexPathForSelectedRow()
    var objectFromRow = objectAtIndexPath(selectedRowInfo)

    let eventID: PFObject = objectFromRow?["EventID"] as! PFObject


    var attendance = PFObject(className: "UsersAttendance")
    attendance.setObject(currentUser!, forKey: "AttendingUser")
    attendance.setObject(eventID, forKey: "EventID")

    attendance.saveInBackgroundWithBlock {
    (succeeded: Bool, error: NSError?) -> Void in
    if error == nil {

    } else {

I'm not that advanced in swift yet, but this course might help. As a warning it is old, and it is Obj-C, not Swift, but you might get some good out of it.

P.S. Have you tried Googling? Stack Overflow is one great web-site.
