        Date date = new GregorianCalendar(2014, 0, 1).getTime(); 
        ParseObject parseObject = new ParseObject("Event");
        parseObject.put("eventName", "Birthday party");
        parseObject.put("eventDate", new SimpleDateFormat("yyyy-MM-dd HH:mm:ss").format(date));

All you have to do is put the date variable, not do the whole SimpleDateFormat thing.
