A private memorial for Patrick Swayze will be held Sunday at Sony Studios in Culver City, Calif.

“In lieu of flowers,” says a statement released by the late actor’s rep, “please make donations to either of the following two organizations: The Patrick Swayze Pancreas Cancer Research Fund ... or Stand Up to Cancer.”

Swayze, who died Sept. 14 after a 20-month battle with pancreatic cancer, helped Stand Up to Cancer raise funds at the organization’s TV charity event in September 2008.

Sunday’s private memorial comes two weeks after Lake Lure, North Carolina — a town where part of “Dirty Dancing” was filmed — also had a memorial.
