I'm using SQL 2008 RS.  Is it possible to perform a function like the code below?  Obviously the code does not work but I think it makes it clear what I'm trying to do.
Set @ChkItemCheckItemsXpath='/DailyData/Checks/Check/Seats/Seat/CheckItemRecord'


Select case when [GUEST_CHECK_NAME] = 'KJ Chardonnay' then 
		(EXEC msdb.dbo.sp_send_dbmail  @profile_name='MFMail',
		@recipients='5554545@txt.att.net',
		@subject='Void Alert',
		@body='GuestCheckName Test' )
    
		End
		
	 from OPENXML(@hDoc,@ChkItemCheckItemsXpath)  With                                    
       (   
        [GUEST_CHECK_NAME] [varchar](23) 'GuestCheckName'           
          ) XD

You can not call a stored procedure this way within a select statement.

You need to break this down into simpler statements
 Have a statement that assigns the values for the email variables and another statement to send the email

I suspect this is what you intended:
SET @ChkItemCheckItemsXpath = '/DailyData/Checks/Check/Seats/Seat/CheckItemRecord'


IF EXISTS ( SELECT  1
            FROM    OPENXML(@hDoc,@ChkItemCheckItemsXpath)  WITH  (
         [GUEST_CHECK_NAME] [varchar](23) 'GuestCheckName'           
          ) XD
            WHERE   [GUEST_CHECK_NAME] = 'KJ Chardonnay' ) 
    EXEC msdb.dbo.sp_send_dbmail 
			@profile_name = 'MFMail', 
			@recipients = '5554545@txt.att.net', 
			@subject = 'Void Alert', 
			@body = 'GuestCheckName Test'
