Today's edition of Red Bank oRBit has a report on compulsively productive local artist Andrea 'Pinky' Adubato, who sustained a serious incomplete spinal cord injury while hiking in New Mexico over four months ago.

Known for her distinctive pet portraits, murals and splashes of color on everything from cars to her Red Bank house, the painter has been staying with family in the Land of Enchantment while she continues an arduous program of physical therapy — and husband Gene Goellner has been shuttling back and forth to Albuquerque as he assists with her care.

Meanwhile, a group of local friends has been busy organizing a fundraiser in her benefit, scheduled for April 2 in Sea Bright — and they can use the help of anyone who'd like to help Pinky get well enough to make the trip back

We've got the details, as well as an update on Rivercenter's Dine Downtown promotion, only in
today's oRBit.
