Breaking Bad fans will have the opportunity to mourn and pay their respects to Walter White next Saturday, October 19th. According to The Hollywood Reporter, an Albuquerque charity will be hosting a funeral and reception for the fictional character at New Mexico’s Sunset Memorial Park.

The Breaking Bad crew is also getting involved. Michael Flowers, the show’s set decorator, will deliver the service’s euology, which will be followed by a reception at Vernon’s Hidden Valley Steakhouse.

In order to attend the funeral and reception, attendees must make a donation to the Walter White Endowment Fund at the Albuquerque Community Foundation, which benefits Albuquerque Health Care for the Homeless. Donation amounts begin at $20 for general admittance into the funeral, $100 for the reception and funeral, and a $5,000 VIP package that features a pair of tickets to the funeral and reception, seats in the procession limo and a name or business name on Walt's tombstone.

"Walter White has brought awareness to viewers about the problems associated with drug abuse and homelessness," said Sheriff Dan Houston from the Bernalillo County Sheriff’s Department. "If his death can generate financial donations to combat drug abuse and homelessness in Bernalillo County, then Albuquerque Health Care for the Homeless is a well deserving recipient of those proceeds."

Donations can also be made online and merchandise including blue-meth colored bracelets reading "Walter White" are also available for purchase.
