Patrick Swayze's private memorial will be held on Sunday (04.10.09).
The 'Dirty Dancing' actor died on September 14 after losing his battle against pancreatic cancer and his family and friends will pay tribute to him at the service which will be held at Sony Studios in Culver City, California.
His representative said: "In lieu of flowers, please make donations to either of the following two organisations - The Patrick Swayze Pancreas Cancer Research Fund or Stand Up to Cancer."
Last September, Patrick helped Stand Up to Cancer raise money at the organisation's TV charity event.
The private memorial follows a public event in the town of Lake Lure, North Carolina, where much of 1987 movie 'Dirty Dancing' was filmed.
It took place earlier this month at Firefly Cove - known as Camp Chimney Rock when the movie was shot - and the ceremony was free to attend, although organisers asked attendees to donate money to the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network.
Patrick was cremated on September 17 and his ashes are currently being held at his lawyer's office, according to his death certificate.
Is understood the remains will stay at the office until Patrick's wife Lisa Niemi arranges for them to be moved.
Website RadarOnline reports: "Patrick Swayze has been cremated and his wife Lisa is moving ahead with plans to scatter his remains on his New Mexico ranch."
