Three Local Businessmen Donate $225,000 to Hope for NH Recovery

Settlement Reached in Billboard Defamation Case: by WMUR

“…We settled about a month ago with Aaron Day,” said businessman Bill Greiner. “The settlement was north of seven figures. You don’t settle for that unless you feel there is a reason to settle for that.”

The three plaintiffs brought a large chunk of the proceeds to Hope for New Hampshire Recovery, presenting the nonprofit with a $225,000 windfall.

“It’s the first step toward total vindication of all of these allegations, but over and above it’s a great feeling to give all of this money back so Hope can continue its great work,” said businessman Dick Anagnost.

The businessmen said they appeared on the notorious billboard shortly after announcing their financial backing for Hope for New Hampshire Recovery in January last year, so they believe their donation is fitting.

“It was important to us to let the community know that we’re standing behind Hope,” said AutoFair owner Andy Crews. “We believe they’re doing great work in the community. We’re going to stand behind them.”  Listen to the full news story HERE
