On Sept. 5, the 48-story Duke Energy Center in Charlotte, N.C. will be illuminated in light blue, the prostate cancer awareness color, in recognition of National Prostate Cancer Awareness Month.
Wells Fargo, which owns the property, is joining with the Pints for Prostates campaign to raise awareness about prostate cancer. The Duke Energy Center is illuminated by hundreds of programmable color changing LED and metal halide lights. This is the sixth year that Wells Fargo’s Duke Energy Center has been turned blue during September as part of the observance.
