Join the Culture, Art and Philanthropy Experiences

The Sutra collection is more than a beautiful expression of photography; it is also a platform that was created to inspire society to embrace art, culture and charitable giving.

In September 2011, we collaborated with numerous Central Florida foundations for the debut of Sutra. Our efforts have single handily raised unquantifiable level of awareness and substantial funds for a multitude of groups including: Boy Scouts of America, The Annika Foundation, Kerosene Lamp Foundation, March of Dimes, Florida Hospital for Children, to name a few. It was an unforgettable process that we will continue in our future shows.

With the commencement of our world wide tour, we are seeking partnerships with foundations around the globe as a tool to raise friends, funds, and awareness for their cause. To learn more information about how you can become a partner through Sutra experiences, email LeAnn at

Here is what some of our partnering foundations had to say!

“Very simply - it would be impossible to thank you enough for allowing our Foundation to utilize your wonderful art venue last night to host our gathering but I’m going to do so anyway, thank you! The event was fantastic and I can’t imagine how it could have gone any better. More important, all of us here have made two new great friends, with many shared values. No pun intended – but you and Annika make a great pairing! Thanks again ”
- Don Ochsenreiter, President of The Annika Foundation

“Yatin’s vision is extraordinary and we were honored to be a part of his Orlando debut. KLF emphasizes empowerment as the way forward for young people and the messages in Yatin’s art reinforce that concept making “SUTRA” the perfect backdrop.”
- Adonal Foyle, Founder & President of the Kerosene Lamp Foundation

“Yatin created an amazing platform which enabled me to host an unbelievable event for my late husband, which helped raise money and awareness for the endowment. The execution of the event was flawless, and the atmostphere was perfect. I could not have asked for a bettter way to host my friends and supporters.”
- Barbara Hartley, Executive Director of the Downtown Arts District

“Our team at the Walt Disney Pavilion at Florida Hospital for Children feels privileged to have had the opportunity to partner with Yatin. We are grateful for our amazing board members who organized a wonderful evening of friends to learn more about the mission of Florida Hospital for Children and experience Yatin’s art, whose unquestionable talent is only exceeded by the size of his heart.”
- Marla Silliman, Senior Vice President of the Florida Hospital for Children

“The University Club Foundation was thrilled by club member Yatin Patel's offer to host a University Club Foundation night during the successful run of the presentation of Sutra in downtown Orlando. 100% of the proceeds from the evening were donated to the Foundation. Through Yatin's generosity, the Foundation was able to continue its mission of offering higher education financial scholarships to deserving Central Florida students. The University Club is proud of its affiliation with Sutra and proud to have Yatin Patel as a both a member and director of the Club.”
