Why not use rsyslog?
It certainly supports forwarding messages over network with something as 
simple as:
/etc/rsyslog.d/remote.conf: :msg,contains,"avc:" @@central-box

You can consume the audit logs with the imfile input module and send out 
messages as emails with ommail output module.

This is an existing infrastructure that you can probably leverage to 
solve your use case.
