Cam Bunting of Berlin will be honored with Coastal Hospice’s Charter Society Anchor Award at the annual Hats for Hospice fundraising event on May 21.
The Charter Society is the group of donors who have contributed $1,000 or more annually to Coastal Hospice. The nonprofit presents the Anchor Award every year to a person who has demonstrated significant commitment to hospice and palliative care, made a significant financial contribution to the organization, garnered and cultivated financial support in the community for the organization, and shown qualities of leadership, vision, integrity, compassion, cooperation and generosity of time and talents.
“Cam is a fearless advocate for Coastal Hospice,” said Coastal Hospice President Alane Capen. “A dozen years ago, she helped to create Coastal Hospice at the Lake, our inpatient unit at Deer’s Head Center, and lately she has been instrumental in the campaign to build Coastal Hospice at the Ocean.” Bunting is serving her second term on the Coastal Hospice Board.
“We’re grateful for Cam’s support. I’m looking forward to presenting her with the Anchor Award,” Capen added.
Bunting said the award came as a total surprise to her.
“There are a lot of people who do a lot of great things in this community,” Bunting said. “To be honored is a humbling experience.”
Bunting, a native of Salisbury, has owned Bunting Realty, Inc. in Berlin since 1991. She is married to Woody Bunting and has three adult children and 10 grandchildren.
Bunting’s energetic volunteerism stems from the tradition her family —including her parents and siblings — established in helping their community. Her volunteer work includes serving on the board of Coastal Hospice, helping establish Coastal Hospice at the Lake and actively raising funds for the capital campaign to build Coastal Hospice at the Ocean. She also chaired the board at Atlantic General Hospital for nine years.
