Friends of a Saskatoon murder victim are setting up a special fund to help pay for his funeral.

Dustin Boulet was fatally stabbed last weekend on his 29th birthday. He was reportedly trying to break-up a fight outside a bar.

"We're trying to take care of our friend's family, because a lot of us have been lifelong friends of Dustin," said Roy Lavallee, one of the organizers.

A donation account has been set-up at the Affinity Credit Union. It's called the "Dustin Boulet Fund."

The funeral is Sunday.
