CLEVELAND– Happy birthday to Gina DeJesus who turns 24 years old Thursday.

She celebrated her birthday last Saturday with a big party.

Gina, seen in this picture with her mother, Nancy Ruiz, celebrated her first birthday back together with family in a decade.

Gina, along with Amanda Berry and Michelle Knight, were held captive for more than ten years by Ariel Castro on Seymour Ave.

They escaped on May 6, 2013.

Gina’s birthday party was held at Landerhaven in Mayfield Heights. The theme was “Winter Wonderland Ball.”

As you can see, Gina was wearing a beautiful white dress.

There were more than 250 people at Gina’s birthday party.
