How can I create an event on Team Calendar without associating with a user/owner for that?

we need to have a company wide holiday calendar that is accessible for all groups, but I can't seem to find a way to create an event without assigning to a named user.

thanks!

To create a new event type, click Add Event and then Add new Event Type:
