You can send mail programmatically and in this
case it would amount to combining the below
code with a function that retrieves the buffer
contents, `buffer-string', perhaps?

But I suspect your use case is better benefited
from just opening a buffer with whatever
command you fancy for that - I use

    (gnus-post-news 'post "")

- and then simply yank the buffer into it!

But here is the code anyway:

(require 'cl-lib)
(require 'gnus-msg)
(require 'message)

(defun mail-to-many (to subject body)
  (cl-dolist (this-to to)
    (gnus-post-news 'post "")
    (message-goto-to)          (insert this-to)
    (message-goto-subject)     (insert subject)
    (message-goto-body)        (insert body)
    (message-send-and-exit) ))
