Dirty Dancing For A Cure (Top Story)

.
Dirty Dancing For A Cure was a top story in August. Here it is again as we recap 2010: Dirty Dancing songwriter Franke Previte is expanding his new mission to preserve Hollywood history while honoring the memory of his friend Patrick Swayze through the release of the original demo recordings of the soundtrack's most popular songs by embarking on a pilgrimage to the iconic movie's two primary filming sites while helping to boost the landmark destination that recently has fallen on hard times.

During the week between the Tuesday, Sept. 7 release of Dirty Dancing: The Original Demos (Knockout Music) and the first anniversary of Swayze's untimely passing, the co-writer of the 48 million-selling soundtrack's Oscar- and Golden Globe-winning smash "(I've Had) The Time Of My Life" and "Hungry Eyes" will be driving from his New Jersey home to the Mountain Lake Conservancy & Hotel in Pembroke, VA to survey the troubled "Kellerman's Resort" filming location with which he has now teamed to aid in its preservation. Previte's trip will extend to Lake Lure, NC for charitable appearances Sept. 17-18 at the first annual Dirty Dancing Festival.

At both stops, Previte will be raising money for the Patrick Swayze Pancreas Cancer Research Fund at Stanford Cancer Center, established by Lisa Niemi Swayze. USA Today, the Associated Press, Billboard, ABC News Radio and Premiere Radio Networks are among the top media whose coverage this summer has anticipated the release of Dirty Dancing: The Original Demos. - more on this story
