Aided by a social media campaign to get her over the top, Megan Hennessy was named the winner of the annual Uke Cruise Giveaway that will take her to Mexico and other points south.

Hennessy, who is on sabbatical from her job as music teacher at the Block Island School, said she received an email from one of the cruise’s sponsors, ukelele teacher Sarah Maisel.

“Aloha Megan, it’s Sarah Maisel. Thank you so much for submitting a wonderful video for our Uke Cruise Giveaway. Your video had the most votes by far, and we are very excited to let you know you’ve won the $2,000 credit for the Mexico cruise with us! Congratulations!”

Miss Hennessy flies out of New York on March 19 to San Francisco for the 10-day cruise.

Hennessy said of the support she received that helped her win: “Overwhelmingly beautiful, so much support. I felt like a local celebrity!”
