I had the honor of being asked to shoot the grand opening ceremony of the Queens University Levine Center, a brand new wellness and recreation facility. Things didn’t quite go as planned, however. The original idea to have the ribbon cutting outside was thrown out the window when a huge storm decided to roll in at the last minute. Rain didn’t damper anyone’s spirits, though. This building was astonishing and HUGE! The 145,000-square-foot building had no problem housing the hundreds that would show up indoors to celebrate it’s grand opening. Floor to ceiling lobby windows made for such a great first impression, and provided wonderful lighting for the event. Charlotte philanthropists Leon and Sandra Levine performed the official ribbon cutting as hundreds of onlookers and supporters cheered on. The three-story facility has an indoor basketball/volleyball court, a 5,000-square-foot fitness center, 33-meter stretch swimming pool, and indoor track! I can only imagine how happy these students are going to be enjoying this building. Enjoy this little recap of the event!
