Dear Mr./Ms. [insert name of editor or producer]:
FACILITY [Name of your facility] will participate in a national celebration of urology nurses and associates during Urology Nurses and Associates Week, November 1-7, 2009, sponsored by the Society of Urologic Nurses and Associates (SUNA).
FACILITY [Name of your facility] will mark the week in 2009 with activities honoring urology nurses and associates. On DATE [list activities and events – including dates, times, places and a few short details – here.] On behalf of FACILITY [insert name of facility], you are invited to attend our celebration and cover these events in [insert name of media outlet] as your time allows. Urology nurses care for patients across the lifespan, providing guidance and treatment for a variety of urologic diseases and concerns. They work in all health care settings and specialize in such areas as continence care, male/female sexual dysfunction, infertility, oncology, surgery, cystoscopy and urodynamics. Urology nurses at FACILITY [Name of your facility] care for many members of our community, and I think your readers/viewers would be very interested in a story.
If you are unable to attend our celebration, I encourage you to help us recognize this diverse nursing specialty and prepare a story about an exceptional local urology nurse, a patient who has received expert care, or the varied specialty of urology nursing. I would be happy to serve as a source should you decide to go forward with a story. Please feel free to contact me at the phone number or e-mail shown below.

Thank you for your consideration. I look forward to hearing from you.
