I think this will do it for you, in Emacs at least.  


(defface appt-face
  '((t (:foreground "red" :background "white")))
  "Face to indicate a current appointment."
  :group 'appt)

(defadvice appt-disp-window (before appt-hilite-more activate)
  (when appt-mode-string
    (put-text-property 1 (- (length appt-mode-string) 1)
                       'face 'appt-face appt-mode-string)))

(defadvice appt-check (after appt-hilite activate)
  (when appt-mode-string
    (put-text-property 1 (- (length appt-mode-string) 1)
                       'face 'appt-face appt-mode-string)
    (force-mode-line-update)))
