Hi team at SPN,

Hope this email finds you all well. I wonder if any of you have time for
some outreach for various NY networks regarding this event I helped
organize here. I already created the FB event and did some initial outreach
but especially because the holidays are around the corner, I would very
much appreciate your help here!

Thanks in advance!
