About the Shillelagh Golf  Tournament

As the Shillelagh Golf Tournament is a major fundraiser for the Barber National Institute, we hope to have your continued support as we embrace social distancing. Not only will you be supporting the mission of the Barber National Institute but local businesses like Whispering Woods Golf Course and restaurants in downtown Erie, PA. We look forward to when we can host the annual tournament together again in June 2021.


2020 Shillelagh Man of the Year

Norm (Beecher) Boetger, Jr. is carrying on a family tradition of supporting the Barber National Institute. It began years ago when his father and a few friends started sponsoring a Christmas party every year at the Maennerchor Club for students at the Barber National Institute.  Norm started helping out, and began to share in his father’s affection for the children and staff, and dedication to the Barber National Institute mission.

When Norm’s father passed away in 2011, he and his family and friends thought that a golf tournament to benefit his favorite charity would be the perfect memorial.  The “Stormin’ Norman” tournament was born, and since then it has raised more than $70,000 for the Barber National Institute.  The 2020 event will be held on Friday, Sept. 4 at Lawrence Park Golf Club.

Norm recently retired from a career in sales for Lakes Pipe & Supply Corporation, and is now able to travel to enjoy his favorite pastime: golfing.  He is happy to honor his father’s memory and support an organization that holds a special place in their hearts.


Thank you to our 2020 Sponsors!
