The National Liberty Museum was delighted to honor Bruce & Robbi Toll and Bill O’Flanagan & Michelle Toll as our 2018 Heroes of Liberty at the 19th Annual Glass Auction and Gala on October 6, 2018. Bruce and Robbi have supported the NLM’s mission for more than 25 years. The Museum celebrates the Toll family’s legacy each year through our annual Awards of Valor* program, a highly distinguished community recognition that was first launched with the Toll family’s generous support through Reedman-Toll Auto World. Each year, the Award has grown in stature and size. Today, the Awards of Valor program is in its 13th year and has honored thousands of police, firefighters and first-responders from throughout the Mid-Atlantic area. As President of Reedman-Toll, Bill has been integral in expanding the sponsorship of the Awards of Valor program from one dealership to more than 50 who make up the Philly Area Chevy Dealers LMA serving the Philadelphia area, Delaware and Southern New Jersey. Each year, Bill participates in the Awards Ceremony and bestows the honors on courageous heroes throughout our region. Congratulations to Bruce, Robbi, Bill, and Michelle—you are our heroes!
