ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. Former Naperville resident Bob Odenkirk and one of his former "Breaking Bad" co-stars will host an Albuquerque fundraiser next week for victims of Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico.
Odenkirk, who originated the role of sleazy lawyer Saul Goodman on "Breaking Bad" and currently portrays him on "Better Call Saul," is sponsoring a benefit event in Albuquerque where both shows have been filmed, the actor announced on social media.
"Albuquerque! A benefit event for Puerto Rico October 23 with my friend Steven Quezada of Breaking Bad. Join in if you can!" Odenkirk said on Twitter, with a picture of the invitation.
Steven Michael Quezada played federal drug enforcement agent Steven Gomez in "Breaking Bad" and is now an elected member of the New Mexicos Bernalillo County Commission, the regional governing body for the area that includes Albuquerque.
The $50 per person event will be held at an Albuquerque brewery and is part of a broader effort by actress Anne Heche to raise money for the island. It will feature a raffle, a silent auction and entertainment.
Hundreds of thousands of people in Puerto Rico are still without running water.
Some of the islands 51 sewage treatment plants remain out of service after Hurricane Maria struck last month.
Tourism companies in Albuquerque offer "Breaking Bad" tours showcasing spots made popular by the show.
