Hope you are well.

Nissa asked that I email you information about the Fresh event we are hosting at Ger-Nis on Monday September 27th,
so if you wanted to you could be the mixologist and help us out with the drinks (beer and wine included).

Obviously, we will compensate you for your time, so if you are free,
we would love if you could help out!

Please find attached.

Please let me know as soon as you can.

Enjoy your weekend,

Most probably you were redirected to a fake antivirus page.


Please be careful when you receives messages from someone you
don't know, and certainly do not open any attachments.
