Homeless families will get a bit of holiday cheer during the Combat Radio Celebrity Charity breakfast at Valencia’s Salt Creek Grille on Saturday, beginning at 8:30 a.m.

Among the charities benefiting from the event is Family Promise, which helps homeless families in the Santa Clarita Valley.

“I had no idea how many homeless there were in the Santa Clarita Valley. For these homeless kids, this may be the only Christmas they’re going to get,” said Ethan Dettenmaier, a disc jockey for Combat Radio and host for the event.

Combat Radio is available in more than 110 different markets, on iTunes and online at

Tickets are $10 and include a delicious breakfast.

“We owe a big debt of gratitude to Salt Creek Grille, who really stepped up to help us,” Dettenmaier said.

Entertainment will be provided by The Glorious from Manchester, England, who will perform two songs from their debut CD, “Stories From A Fractured Youth and a Christmas classic.”

Celebrities joining the breakfast will include Mark Ryan, Rick Mora, Gary Anthony Williams (“The Boondocks,” “Weeds,” “Malcolm In The Middle”), James Lew (“Inception,” “Pirates Of The Caribbean,” “The Last Samurai”).

 Jess Harnell (“Wall E,” “Toy Story,” “Cars”), Aerial Miranda, Jay Tavare (“Adaption,” “Street Fighter,” “The Missing,” “Cold Mountain”), Ian Buchanan (“Justice League,” “The Larry Sanders Show,” “General Hospital”) and Jaylyn Bishop (Comedy Central) will also participate.

“Everyone is so excited and adrenalized to be involved with this breakfast, to bring a bit of Christmas to these kids and light up their lives,” Dettenmaier said.

“Afterwards, so many of these families will go back to living in their cars or trying to find a place to stay. No one deserves that,” Dettenmaier said.

His hopes are to expand the successful event.

“Next year, we’d like to have more breakfasts to help,” Dettenmaier continued.

Toys For Tots will also be present at the event, collect new, unwrapped toys to help children in need across Southern California.

The celebrity factor doesn’t end with personal appearances, either

There will be a silent auction featuring signature items signed by Magic Johnson, Robby Krieger, Dizzy Reed (Guns N’ Roses,) members of the pro football Hall Of Fame, Mike Grell (DC Comics,) Skip Englom (Dogtown and Z-Boys) and soccer legend Werner Roth.

To purchase tickets, call (818) 441-1949 or (818) 441-1946. Salt Creek Grille is located at 24415 Town Center Drive, Valencia.
